The MA in Higher Education is a part time taught programme that is completed over 2 years.
The aims of the programme are to:

Explore and encourage participants to develop the technical, pedagogical and cultural skills needed to design, support and evaluate appropriate eLearning opportunities for students in order that they are able to select and utilise appropriate technologies in order to meet the needs of an increasingly diverse population of learners;
Emphasise the appropriate use of e-learning approaches in each participant's work and in the work of others in order that they are able to undertake a practitioner based eLearning initiative within their own working practice;
Encourage the participants to reflect upon their own professional practice
