What will I learn?

Course description

MA Digital Technologies, Communication and Education is an award-winning course that uses digital technologies, the broadcast media and/or interpersonal, group or organisational communications techniques to enhance practice, research and the professional and academic development of educators in technology- and information-rich environments.

This MA is designed to help teachers, lecturers, administrators, managers, e-learning designers, trainers and anyone else with an interest in education to understand the impact of digital technologies and media on learning, whether in formal or informal settings.

Aims

You will:

  • further your career by improving your skills and knowledge base in the area of digital technologies and communication, in order that these can be applied in any educational setting;
  • enhance your interpersonal and group communications skills in order to learn independently and make effective decisions through self-reflection on your own practice;
  • develop the ability to design your own educational materials using digital technologies and in particular to develop creative and innovative approaches to this work;
  • build your confidence and ability to identify and critically evaluate the use of digital technologies, whether in formal educational settings or the informal educational processes of society, and with specific reference to your own needs and practice;
  • develop your ability to systematically understand and critically evaluate research and research methodologies relevant to digital technologies in education, and apply this knowledge in actual research projects;
  • develop an ability to manage and understand rapid technological change and its effect on educational processes, institutions and policies.

Teaching and learning

Formalised lectures are infrequent. Instead, classes tend to mix lecturer input with group work, computer and video activities, simulations, problem-based learning and class discussions.

We make considerable use of enquiry-based learning (EBL), encouraging students' critical reflection on their own practice and beliefs: formed both by their professional experiences and intuitions, and theory and research.

Career opportunities

Manchester Institute of Education (MIE) graduates go on to shape education policy and practice through positions in NGOs and in the public and private sector.
