Digital Education Postgraduate Certificate

The PGCert in Digital Education is a part-time online distance learning course designed for professionals (for example teachers or learning technologists) wishing to further their expertise or change the direction of their career.

The programme will introduce you to knowledge, skills, and perspectives on current research in digital education. You will have opportunities to apply and reflect on this new knowledge in relation to both your own learning and to your professional contexts.

On completion of the programme you will have developed skills and knowledge which allow you to:

  • demonstrate a critical understanding of theories and perspectives relevant to digital education
  • take a proactive and self-reflective role in working and to develop professional relationships with others
  • proactively formulate ideas and hypotheses and to evaluate these
