Course summary

The MA TESOL with ICT is one of a limited number of courses in the UK that allow language teachers to explore in depth the role of media and educational technologies in the teaching and learning of English as a foreign, other, or second language.

The course is for experienced English language teachers who want to make effective use of technology to support the teaching and learning of English. Core to this will be your knowledge of teaching, your linguistic competence in English, and your understanding of the available technologies and how to integrate them into teaching and learning. These areas are all covered in the range of modules which make up the course.

To investigate the potential of technology in English language teaching (ELT), traditional media technologies such as coursebooks are considered, as are a variety of digital technologies including social media, mobile technologies, video-conferencing tools, online collaborative workspaces, and more. These technologies are examined in terms of both they’re in- and out-of-class use. When considering technology use in ELT you will be encouraged to locate your enquiries in your own professional context, so you can apply your newly acquired skills and knowledge appropriately.
