Overview

The Educational Technology programme is an online 1-year programme designed to provide an opportunity for professional development to people who are working 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 flexibility of the programme and major focus on e-learning make it especially well-suited to those of you who go to work – whether it be outside of Tartu or in another country.

Why Educational Technology?
  • The flexible 1-year programme is mostly online-based and taught entirely in English - a good opportunity to those who go to work, regardless of their location. You do not have to move to Tartu to study.
  • Major emphasis is put on teamwork to foster students’ skills of collaboration and help them develop a network of colleagues to rely on in their professional life.
  • As a major innovation, the MA thesis is done as teamwork in small groups.
  • The programme is characterised by a problem-based approach and a large amount of practical training.
  • There are no similar programmes in the region.

Programme Structure

Curriculum
Two classroom teaching sessions are planned – one week in the beginning of the programme and one at 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 – the MA thesis is done as teamwork in small groups to foster students’ teamwork skills and help them create an international network of alumni for future cooperation.The Educational Technology 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

People who teach in their job (teachers, lecturers, professors, trainers etc.) or people supervising teaching staff.
