Working with established and emergent digital media, you will design rich technology-based, multimedia learning environments, understand and evaluate their use in varied educational settings, and conduct research on how people learn with technology. The Digital Media Design for Learning (DMDL) studio-based curriculum is complemented by an excellent internship program with host sites in all areas of educational technology and media.
Unlike programs that are focused on the application of existing technologies to formal schooling (such as how to use PowerPoint to supplement lectures), you’ll design the media and technology of the future for all kinds of learning environments and conduct research on how people learn with technology.
What you'll learn
- How to create, use, and evaluate media and technology for learning across varied contexts—K–12 schools, universities, workplaces, museums, nonprofits, and international development.
- How to critically analyze historical developments, theoretical shifts and broad trends in practice in the field of educational technology, focusing especially on challenges and opportunities afforded by changes in media & technology landscapes and educational trends.
- Skills to produce prototypes, support design thinking and instructional design processes as well as produce media in traditional and emerging media.
- How to apply principles of design and practice that hold greatest promise for enriching learning experiences across the spectrum of learning environments- from informal to formal learning as well as face to face and online learning.
