Description

Advertisement

On the educational side, graduates of the course gain a deep understanding of the theories of learning that are relevant to the use of ICT and will have a realistic view of the real enhancements to learning that ICT can facilitate. On the technical side, graduates of the course gain a good knowledge of the principles of web design, multimedia authoring, digital video and computer operation. Although aspects of computer programming are by necessity touched upon it is not an aim of the degree to produce people who can program.

In the second year of the course students carry out a substantial piece of research which typically involves the design, implementation and evaluation of a learning experience in which ICT plays a key role.

Thus graduates of the programme are in a position to play a leadership role in the area of ICT In learning. They are technically proficient, appreciate the role of ICT in learning, are able to develop ICT based course material, or tools, and above all are capable of undertaking researching into the use of ICT at the "chalk face" and in the wider educational and learning communities.

Contents
