The M.Ed. program we offer that focuses on Educational Technology is designed for educators, learning support, and administrators, at the K12 or postsecondary level, who wish to develop their competencies to integrate technology to enhance and transform teaching and learning. There will be an emphasis on developing literacies with digital, networked, and open technologies as we explore the major shifts in education such as personalization, connectedness, openness, assessment, and access. These educators will be able to provide leadership in the transformations toward more open inquiry-based learning and diverse classroom modalities, such as blended, online, open, and multi-access. Our graduates will develop personal learning networks to carry with them into their professional practice as we make use of video conferencing, social media, and collaborative apps to support innovative projects.
Our MEd cohort is offered in such a way that you can complete the entire program online. Some courses are offered in multi-access format, which means learners can choose to be in the video conference-enabled classroom or to come in via video synchronously, while others are offered entirely online (with a mix of synchronous and asynchronous communication).
