The Education and Technology MA will teach students the practical and research skills to design, use and evaluate technology-enhanced learning interventions. They will learn how to embed technology within educational practice, explore key issues and debates in this field, and critically appraise educational theory.

This programme will enhance a student’s theoretical insights in, and practical applications of, technology in education and professional practice. Students learn how to apply the latest educational theory to their everyday professional practice as well as developing research skills, allowing progression on to doctoral research.

Students undertake modules to the value of 180 credits.

The programme consists of two core modules (60 credits), and either two elective modules (60 credits) and a dissertation (60 dissertation), or a report (30 credits) and three elective modules (90 credits).

Core modules

  • Education and Technology: Key Issues and Debates (online/mixed)
  • Researching Digital Learning (online/mixed)

Elective modules

Students choose two optional modules from across the UCL Institute of Education's Master's-level offering. The following are examples:

  • Design and Use of Technologies for Education
  • Technology and Education Beyond the Classroom

Dissertation/report

All students undertake an independent project culminating either in a dissertation of 20,000 words or a report of 10,000 words, supervised either on campus or online.

Teaching and learning

Teaching is delivered through individual and group working; lectures and podcasts, student presentations and group discussion of reading and writing undertaken in preparation for sessions, both online and face-to-face; collaborative activities in face-to-face and online contexts. All modules are assessed by written assignments.

Applicants should have a minimum of a second-class UK Bachelor's degree or overseas qualification of an equivalent standard in a relevant subject (related to education and/or technology), and relevant experience in teaching, education and/or a technology related field. Applicants who do not meet these criteria may sometimes be considered on the basis of an excellent personal statement.
