Final project

The Master's Degree in Technology-Mediated Language Teaching and Learning involves a final project worth 6 ECTS credits. The final project entails preparing a report, research paper or project in which the knowledge and skills learned in the programme are applied and developed. Students must take this course in order to complete the programme. As it aims to assess skills worked on as part of the programme, students must have already successfully completed a certain number of credits to enrol.
 
The final project involves a theoretically-motivated pedagogical application of technology in a teaching/learning context. Students can choose to design and develop a technology-mediated pedagogical intervention or to create online materials for language learning. The teaching/learning context can be online or face-to-face, but the project must involve the use of technology. To enrol, students need to apply for a specific topic and this application must then be approved by the programme's teaching staff. The tutor plays a key role in informing and advising students, and handling the final project selection process.
 
Students work on the final projects on their own with the support and guidance from a final project supervisor. The supervisor is responsible for monitoring the project, and guiding and advising students in each of the following aspects: the initial idea, establishing a solid basis, the methods, reporting the results and defending the project.

The final project concludes with the defense, in which students must present the project with a video showing its development and the results obtained. Students then have to answer questions from a panel of three examiners. It is the task of these examiners to assess the project.

The final project mark is based on three factors: 1) development of the project, 2) the final report, product, project or study produced, and 3) the defense of the project. The defense must take place in real time with the examiners.

For more information about the teaching and application process, please refer to the course plan available on the Campus once you have applied for admission to the programme.
