MSc degrees in Information and Communication Technologies in Education (thesis and non-thesis) are designed to provide advanced professional studies at graduate level to develop capabilities essential to the effective design, evaluation, delivery of technology-based instruction and training (e.g. software development, multimedia development, assistive technology modifications, web-based development, and distance learning).
The programs are intended (1) to prepare educators to assume leadership roles in the integration of both existing and emerging educational and information and communication technologies into the school curriculum or instructional activities, (2) to provide graduate-level instructional opportunities for several populations (e.g., classroom teachers, corporate trainers, educational software developers, educational system designers, etc.) that need to acquire both technological competencies and an understanding of sound instructional design principles and techniques, and (3) make informed decisions or recommendations regarding adoption of existing or emerging educational and information technologies in a learning environment.
University admissions requirements are expected.
