MTEL certificate offerings

If you are interested in short-term learning, the MTEL programme offers courses toward certification in specific professional areas. When electing for a certificate of advanced studies (CAS), you will be enrolled as a guest student while in the certificate programme. If you choose to enrol in the MTEL programme at a later date, courses you have already taken will be credited toward the degree.

Currently, we are offering these online course modules for Summer Semester 2020:

mtl100 Principles, Theory, and Practice of Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL)

This course studies the history and evolution of distance education and technology-enhanced learning (TEL). A selected range of social and political/economic factors, theories, learning and teaching models, technology and media innovations, institutions and systems, and major writers that have shaped the development of the field will be critically examined. A variety of technologies are used to support the development of foundational skills and a personal learning environment that are integral to current practice. Students will also be asked to periodically reflect upon opportunities and barriers that are characteristic of higher education within their local institutional and national context.
