M.Ed. Curriculum and Learning Design( CLD): EDUCLD5 - Emerging Technologies for Teaching and Learning

Course Description

In this course, students will learn how emerging technologies support and improve teaching and learning by integrating theoretical and empirical frameworks from different disciplines. They will research and critically write a comprehensive and in-depth analysis of one of the emerging technologies and its impact on students’ learning based on the learned knowledge. Students will be given the opportunity to collaboratively develop, compile and test a mobile resource to complement existing curricula. Students then will implement the mobile resource that is contextualized to the UAE educational settings and evaluate its impact. In addition, students will innovatively recommend strategies to overcome the challenges faced during the integration of the mobile resource, specifically the challenges faced based on educational equity and diversity.
