The Master of Science (MSc) programme in Educational Science and Technology (EST) is for anyone fascinated by education and training, yet not intending to become a teacher.

The main focus of the EST programme is on the design and evaluation of learning arrangements in schools and organisations. This might entail e.g. the instruction of young children at primary school, developing curricula in vocational education, assessing the quality of school performance, or re-training adult employees in an in-company setting. As an EST student, you will enjoy a high-tech approach to your studies while never losing sight of the human scale. ICT plays a role in education today, and the programme will introduce you to the theoretical foundations and practical application of ICT learning environments and tools. You will acquire knowledge about theories of learning and assessment, curriculum design and implementation, learning technologies, and learning interventions. You will also learn how to design and evaluate different learning arrangements and to translate this into advice and solutions to practical problems. The EST programme has two profiles: • Educational Design and Effectiveness (EDE) • Human Resource Development (HRD)

  • theory: 30%
