MEd in TECHNOLOGY STUDIES EDUCATION
Digital Learning and Curriculum (DLC)
Face-to-Face, Blended, and Online
Begins July 2014

THE PROGRAM
One of the most active topics of research at the moment, Digital Learning and Curriculum is spurred by the recent realization that, when it comes to technology, disciplinary knowledge (or content) of effective teachers is more a matter of understanding deep associations among familiar concepts than it is about taking more advanced courses in technology.

In a sense, this Master’s program is focused on developing better understandings of what teachers already know – seeking to enhance teachers’ knowledge of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) not by studying more about computer hardware or software individually, but by unpacking concepts collaboratively (e.g., identifying and elaborating metaphors, analogies, applications, exemplars, gestures, and other experiences that contribute to the ‘life’ of an idea).

Digital Learning and Curriculum is thus designed for those teachers who are seeking to enhance professional practice by developing their educational technology knowledge through collaborative study.
