Participants will gain a comprehensive overview of the field of technology-enhanced learning and develop an ability to select, evaluate and create digital tools in a variety of digital education contexts. This course explores the evolution of digital education, and the impact digital technology has on learning practice and theories. Drawing on theories of affordances, students learn about the opportunities and constraints of a wide variety of digital tools, and materials, and how they can be used in a pedagogically appropriate way to enhance learning. Focusing on digital pedagogies the course will enable participants to learn about how best they can use digital tools for teaching and learning in a particular context.

Why you should take this course?

Taking a digital pedagogies course in a Masters of Education is essential for educators who want to keep up with the rapidly changing landscape of education. Technology has become an integral part of modern life, and it is increasingly important for educators to have an understanding of how it can be used to support teaching and learning. This course provides an in-depth exploration of digital pedagogies, including the selection, evaluation, and creation of digital tools that are relevant to your educational contexts. Students will learn about the affordances and constraints of different digital tools, and how they can be used in a pedagogically appropriate way to enhance learning. Through critical examination of the current literature, students will explore the theoretical frameworks that underpin digital learning and the issues that challenge practitioners and researchers in relation to learning in the digital age and how this influences practice. Ultimately, this course will enable participants to use digital tools effectively in their teaching and learning contexts and to critically evaluate their impact.

This course is designed for all students no matter current digital competencies. The focus will be to enable you to explore your practice no matter your starting point.

Testimonials from students in 2022:

“Thank you for teaching me this semester. I have learnt a lot about DT pedagogies, and it has changed the way I approach using DT in the classroom.  Thank you for "walking the walk" and making the lesson delivery varied and engaging.  I can only appreciate how much time and effort goes into that.”

“Throughout the course, I really enjoyed your lecture. I had never imagined that I could learn about digital technology at my age. It was very challenging, but I learned a lot from you.”
