Overview

*This programme profile is financed by Dora Plus Action 4: Marketing of study and employment opportunities in Estonia (European Regional Development Fund).

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. There are two sessions in Tartu: a two-week onsite session in August 2022 and one week in June 2023. The exact dates of the August 2022 session will be published by early June.

Career opportunities

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.
