Practice-based research in educational technology

Date posted: 13/11/2007

The Open University is about to launch an international online masters-level course called "Practice-based research in educational technology".  The course looks at how technologies in education are researched and at how technology is changing the way that educational research is conducted.  Within an online tutor group, course participants develop skills in locating, understanding and critically assessing research studies.  They also examine associated theories, ethincs, epistemology and relationships between research, policy and practice.

The course is available worldwide and is suitable for lecturers, trainers, developers and other professionals working in the education sector.  It can be taken as a stand-alone professional development course, but it can also contribute to a number of Open University higher degrees.
