We are excited about launching our new MSc in Learning Innovation this Autumn. The course will be available on campus from October 2012 and can be taken full-time or on a module-by-module basis. An online version of the course will be available from October 2013.
There are four 30-credit modules (Technology Enhanced Learning, Learning Design, Research Methodologies and Case Studies of Innovation) and a 60-credit Dissertation module. The first two modules in particular might be of interested to anyone who wants to get an up to date overview of new technologies and how they can be used to promote different pedagogical approaches.
The MSc will give participants the chance to explore a range of technologies and consider their implications for practice. We also plan to link into a range of related activities throughout the broader e-learning community of researchers and practitioners, through social networking media and through participation in relevant online events – such as the popular Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) and through our annual online conference ‘Follow the Sun’. More information on the MSc can be found on the website, also look at the four short videos we have produced, which give an overview of the course, it’s focus on learning and teaching innovation and a description of who might be interested in taking the course.
