LEARNING DESIGN AND TECH

Short DescriptionUpdated

The BSc in Learning Design and Technology is a 4-year integrative programme jointly offered by the Faculties of Education, Engineering and Science. Its design is based on the latest re-formulation of the science of education in which education is cast as "a metadiscipline or discipline of disciplines" to equip learners with knowledge, competencies, and leadership to facilitate learning and development in and beyond the formal education settings. Graduates of the programme will be equipped with multi-disciplinary knowledge in education, technology, and science with education and learning sciences serving as the unifying threads. Not only will students be provided with internship opportunities to consolidate theory-practice integration, but they will also carry out research projects to synthesize multi-disciplinary knowledge and action-science competencies.

Programme features:

  • Integrative, multi-disciplinary programme in education, technology and science
  • Theory driven, action-science oriented, and lab-based learning approach
  • Integrated STEM education with technology-based and multi-media instruction in multicultural contexts
  • Service learning competencies through education and community engagement
  • Research in technology, science and transdisciplinary studies in and beyond STEM education
  • Articulation with the PGDE in technology- and/or science-related teaching and other research-based postgraduate programmes in education and/or technology-related disciplines
