Overview

The E-Learning Major aims to meet the professional needs of educators wishing to upskill in a specialisation of emerging technologies and to discover the place technology has taken across the curriculum in primary, secondary and postsecondary education.

Educators across educational sectors are exploring and sharing innovative ways to use technology to foster interaction, collaboration, and increased engagement with learning.

This course addresses practical and theoretical issues related to the use of digital technologies and innovative pedagogies and students are invited to engage with the pedagogical issues facing educators in the eLearning environment, reflect on their practices and develop strategies for effectively integrating new technologies at their own institutions.

Assessments will include the completion of group presentations, individual research projects tailored to their own working environment.
