The Master's in Educational Sciences: Learning in Interaction addresses the theory, use and effects of innovative educational developments aimed at making learning more meaningful and enjoyable.
We never learn alone. We always learn by interacting with someone or something: For example, with more knowledgeable others (teachers or more advanced fellow students), equally knowledgeable others (peers or in teams), or with artefacts (the environment around us, books or computers). If you're interested in learning about and carrying out high-quality research into these interactions so that you can make a real difference to learning, teaching and instruction, then this is the programme for you.
The two-year programme concentrates on the theory, use and effects of innovative teaching and learning arrangements aimed at meaningful, enjoyable learning through the application of different theories, paradigms and media. Research projects use both experimental and design-based approaches and combine qualitative and quantitative analyses. Looking for more information?
