Learning Technologies 1: Technology-Enhanced Learning

Module code: ED7601

This module will give you a broad overview of technologies, their associated characteristics and the ways in which they can be used to foster different pedagogical approaches across different learning contexts. You will gain experience of a range of technologies, experiment with them and critique their relevance to practice, as well as consider the implications for learning, teaching and research. You will be provided with opportunities to communicate and collaborate with peers through various technologies. Where appropriate, you will benefit from the expertise of the international community via podcasts/videocasts and audio or video conferencing sessions. You will have the opportunity to create your own learning artefacts using different tools and you will be encouraged to become part of the broader TEL community (e.g., Association of Learning Technology, European Distance and E-learning Network).
