The MA programme in Educational Technology at Concordia University Montréal prepares you for careers as designers and developers of instructional materials, professionals who implement technology in educational settings, and as performance consultants who help organizations with challenges that go beyond instruction and technology.


Program Details

While preparing for these roles, you learn how to assess needs and identify the cause of performance gaps; design and implement instructional programs and other types of solutions, and evaluate the outcomes of these programs.  These aspects represent what educational technology is, a field that facilitates learning and improving performance by creating, using, and managing appropriate technological processes and resources.

Course-related projects that emerge from partnerships established by our faculty with local, national and international start-ups, NGOs, corporations, schools, colleges, CEGEPS, and universities—provide opportunities to link classroom learning with its application in the real world.  

To begin the process of launching your career, you can participate in our internship option. With a wide network of for-profit, non-profit, government partners to choose from, you have the opportunity to work in an environment that appeals to your specific interests. 

The Educational Technology program at Concordia University Montréal teaches you to:

  • Analyze organizational contexts to identify underlying opportunities to improve individual and organizational performance through instructional (training) and non-instructional interventions (such as incentive systems, management, workplace design).
  • Prepare individual instructional programs for maximum effectiveness with the intended learners, achieving the desired outcomes, and addressing the practical challenges in learning situations.
  • Create a performance improvement campaign or curriculum that links several related instructional programs and other resources to achieve a complex goal while taking a systemic approach to developing competence among learners.
  • Apply sound learning theories and results of educational research to solve performance problems and guide instructional design.
  • Develop competence with the technologies used to create and deliver instructional and educational materials online, learning materials for classes, workbooks and multimedia materials.
  • Appropriately choose technologies for instructional and educational purposes.
