How do I know if this programme is for me?
If you are working in Higher or Further Education, or in public or private sector training, and want to learn more about how to practise and research online learning, you will benefit from this programme. It is aimed at all those with an interest in the convergence of learning with digital technologies – teachers, trainers, librarians, outreach workers, researchers, managers, technical developers, learning technologists and educational developers.
As part of a research-intensive University, teachers on the MSc in Digital Education programme are research active in the field of online education, and bring their research expertise to their teaching. As a student on this programme, you will have the opportunity to push yourself intellectually, to understand and develop your own theoretical perspectives, and to learn about many new ideas in this fast-changing field of study. We strongly encourage those with ambitions to conduct research and publish in this area to consider applying for the programme.
