Course summary

Overview

The PGDip in Digital Education is a part-time online distance learning course designed for professionals (for example teachers or learning technologists) wishing to further their expertise or change the direction of their career.

The programme will introduce you to knowledge, skills, and perspectives on current research in digital education. You will have opportunities to apply and reflect on this new knowledge in relation to both your own learning and to your professional contexts.

In a field where research can often overstate conclusions from short-term interventions, you will learn to approach research critically and develop skills to carry out research projects and evaluations in your own professional settings.

You will also understand theories of learning underpinning effective use of digital tools; have skills to use and evaluate technologies that are currently available, and be able to look towards future developments in the field.

Learning and teaching

On this course you’ll be taught by our expert academics, from lecturers through to professors. You may also be taught by industry professionals with years of experience, as well as trained postgraduate researchers, connecting you to some of the brightest minds on campus.

Career opportunities

This programme is designed to aid professional development in the field of digital education, enabling you to further your expertise within an existing career path or to change career direction, for example, into CPD provision, educational software development or full time-learning technology support.

Research methods training will also be very useful to enhance your own professional practice and that of your institution.

Careers support

We encourage you to prepare for your career from day one. That’s one of the reasons Leeds graduates are so sought after by employers.

The Careers Centre and staff in your faculty provide a range of help and advice to help you plan your career and make well-informed decisions along the way, even after you graduate.
