Course summary

The Education and Technology MA offers students the opportunity to develop both theoretical and practical approaches to education and technology. The MA is available for both campus and distance learning modes. The MA is based at UCL Knowledge Lab, a ground-breaking research centre that uses the latest evidence to design and implement innovative educational technology and pedagogies that shape the future of education and learning. As such, students are supported by teaching staff who are all active researchers from a range of fields including education, sociology and computer science. Students will develop the skills to design, use and critically appraise education and technology across a wide range of settings (e.g. schools, universities, professional contexts, informal learning environments). Students will learn to adopt a research-based approach to education and technology that equips them for a variety of careers in the education and technology field. We make the most of digital methods in our teaching, and all students can expect to engage in active synchronous and asynchronous learning experiences. Campus based sessions are designed to maximise discussion, debate and developing practical and collaborative skills. Teaching is delivered through tutor presentations, individual and group work, student presentations and group discussions of reading and writing undertaken in preparation for sessions, both online and face-to-face. Some modules require regular weekly student collaboration in and outside the classroom, and it is thus expected that students who sign up for these can sustain the pace of this work. Distance learners join in asynchronous learning activities with campus students and have dedicated Zoom sessions for live discussion of concepts and ideas. Modular (flexible) students - Some postgraduate taught and MRes programmes are available on a modular basis. Modular study lasts between 2 and 5 years. This is different to a part-time study which lasts for a fixed period.
