The programme trains students to develop a career in the field of technology-mediated language teaching and learning at all educational levels (early childhood, primary, secondary and higher education). In addition to language teachers in public or private schools, the programme also trains students to work in jobs related to online language teaching in the educational, publishing and business sectors: designers of online language learning materials, digital platform editors or consultants for online language learning programmes.
The programme is also addressed to current language teachers who wish to update their knowledge on how to use of emerging technological resources for pedagogical purposes. Likewise, it offers teachers the chance to gain a university qualification in a field with few current training options, but which is increasingly in demand. This qualification can help broaden their professional opportunities.
The programme also includes optional courses on research methods and data analysis for those students interested in research.
