Educational Technology is an ever growing academic field which recognises the centrality of technology in education and in modern life in general. Digital technologies have revolutionised the ways in which we teach and learn languages by opening a wealth of opportunities to interact with people and resources in the target language.
The MA in Digital Technologies for Language Teaching is an innovative programme for language teachers with at least one year teaching experience (or equivalent). The programme brings together theories and practice of language acquisition, educational technology and foreign language teaching and provides a solid grounding in the pedagogical and practical aspects of new learning technologies with a specific focus on language learning and teaching.
The programme specializes in catering for language professionals from diverse educational sectors, geographical locations and language backgrounds. In particular, it focuses on both teachers of English as a Foreign Language as well as teachers of languages other than English.
The MA in Digital Technologies for Language Teaching is strategically placed within the School of Cultures Languages and Area Studies which is a vibrant environment of national and international expertise in all aspects of several world languages, cultures and language learning and teaching.
The programme is delivered fully online and is offered over two years (part-time). This will allow you to continue with your life commitments while pursuing your academic and professional interests. Although the MA is a distance learning programme it is designed to offer you regular support and to encourage the creation of a learning community of students and tutors sharing common interests, knowledge and experiences. You can rest assured that digital technologies will play a central role in doing so!
