About

The 1-year primarily online Educational Technology master's programme at the University of Tartu is designed to provide professional development to people working or planning to work in positions that involve teaching and wish to use educational technology more effectively in their work.

Overview

The Educational Technology programme is a 1-year online programme designed to provide an opportunity for professional development to people working or planning to work in positions that involve teaching and wish to use educational technology more effectively in their work.

The programme may prove to be especially useful to people currently working at educational institutions (schools, universities, etc.) who did not have a chance to gain digital technology skills and knowledge during their studies (whether because such technological solutions did not exist yet or were only beginning to emerge).

The programme's flexibility and a major focus on e-learning make it especially well-suited to those who work – whether it be outside of Tartu or in another country. In August, there is a ten-day on-site session in Tartu. The exact dates of the August session are usually published by early June. Graduation takes place in June with the possibility of virtual participation.  

Why study Educational Technology at the University of Tartu?

  • The University of Tartu belongs to the top 350 of the world's best universities (THE World University Rankings 2024).
  • The University of Tartu is ranked in the top 300 universities globally in education and training.
  • Teamwork is a primary emphasis of the programme, allowing you to advance your collaboration skills and help you develop a global social network. Students have the option to do their MA thesis in a small team. 
  • The flexible 1-year programme is almost entirely online, allowing you to continue working in your current job.
  • You can find practical solutions to challenges in your workplace. 

Career opportunities

Graduates are prepared to work as lecturers in universities or teachers in schools (depending on their previous studies and positions), as specialists in the field of education, or in various institutions or companies focused on educational research, development or innovation. Continuing in the doctoral programme is also possible. 

Accreditation

Every seven years, all Estonian higher education institutions must undergo external evaluation – institutional accreditation. The latest assessment took place in 2022. The assessment council of the Estonian Quality Agency for Education decided to accredit the University of Tartu for the next seven years (2023-2029).

Programme Structure

Two classroom teaching sessions are planned – two weeks at the beginning of the programme and one week in the end. For the rest of the year, studies are online-based – independent teamwork is supported through the Moodle environment, cloud-based solutions and webinars.

The studies are also characterised by an innovative approach to the graduation thesis – we offer the possibility of doing the MA thesis as teamwork in small groups to foster students’ teamwork skills and help them create an international network of alumni for future cooperation.

The programme consists of three main parts:

  • General: pedagogical approaches – online interactive lectures and seminars
  • Technical: practical coursework in teams, mentoring of others, seminars
  • Evaluation (research) – research design (mainly action research and design-based research), publishing

Audience

We welcome all people currently working at educational institutions.

Lecturers

The programme director is Emanuele Bardone, Associate Professor of Educational Technology at the University of Tartu.
