What will I learn?

Common to all processes referred to in the questions above, is that they take place while and because we interact. Interaction is the motor of learning and development, and therefore key to improving education.

While we all can recognize these interactions, in this master’s track you will learn to take a scientific, evidence-based approach to better examine these day-to-day interactions. This master zooms in on the complex processes through which we learn academic subjects, develop cognitive and meta-cognitive skills, and acquire social competencies.

Different theoretical perspectives and didactic approaches come together in this master’s track. You will understand learning processes in context, and be capable to examine the challenges that arise in optimizing learning environments to learners' needs.

From September onwards, most of our courses will be offered online. Where possible and necessary we will combine the online education with lectures and activities on campus, since we feel it is important that you can meet your lecturers and fellow students in person. Soon you will hear from us what your study programme will look like and you will receive an invitation for the orientation.
