Description

Advertisement

The School of Education and the School of Computer Science at Trinity College Dublin are offering a multidisciplinary course leading to a Master's degree in Technology and Learning (formerly IT in Education). The programme is offered on a part-time basis over two academic years and the timetable is designed to facilitate participation by practicing teachers and other professionals. It is structured as a taught component followed by a substantive research dissertation leading to the degree of Master in Science.

The course aims to meet the needs of 21st century learners in the context of the emerging Knowledge Society, by providing its students with the opportunity to participate in a research led Masters program exploring the integration of learning and technology.

The focus for the students is on technology mediated transformative learning experiences. The course addresses areas such as creativity, critical reflection, collaboration and meta-cognition through the active design, construction, use and evaluation of a range of learning technologies. Course learning activities and themes are research led and are closely aligned with the ongoing research activities of the Centre for Research in IT in Education.

Contents

This course is delivered on a part-time basis over two years. Lectures are held on campus on Friday afternoons (3-9pm) and Saturday mornings (9-1pm).

* Year one consists of 3 taught modules: Pedagogy & ICT, Technologies for Learning, Multimedia for Learning and at the end of year Capstone Project (Meta Assignment).
* The Research Dissertation is undertaken in year 2. A Research Methods module is also taken in year 2.

All assessment is via project work, which can be written or involve the development of some piece of Multi-media or other software based learning material. Group work is used in some cases and students present their work to their peers. Year 1 finishes off not with an exam but an end of year capstone project the specification for which is " Do something interested which shows you learned something ". The project mirrors that of a full research dissertation - although without the same depth. Most crucially all the project assignments are related to aspects of the end of year assignment.

Preference will be given to applicants who have at least three years in teaching, training or instructional technology development.
