Educational Technology Program Overview

Program Overview

A Bachelor’s Degree in Educational Technology focuses on the intersection of technology and education to prepare students to integrate technology into educational settings through technology-enhanced teaching and learning processes. The program provides a strong foundation in education theory, instructional design, and technology implementation. Throughout the program, students will learn how to create and implement technology-based instructional materials, including multimedia presentations, online courses, and interactive games. They will also gain knowledge of emerging technologies such as virtual reality, artificial intelligence, and social media, and explore their potential technological applications in education. In addition, students will have opportunities to complete their internships or practicums in schools or other educational settings to gain hands-on experience in working with technology in education. Graduates of this program are equipped with critical thinking and problem-solving skills necessary to analyse and evaluate the effectiveness of technological tools and strategies in education.
