Course Description

MSc in Education and Training Management (eLearning)

The MSc. in Education and Training Management (eLearning) is a two-year part-time programme. Current participants on the programme are drawn from the widely varying fields of education (primary, post-primary, third level, adult education), corporate training, industry, health, professional organisations, NGO’s, government departments and state agencies. The eLearning strand is unique in its expertise in practice-based and practice-led research, which allows a depth of qualitative analysis unparalleled in other Irish institutions.

Previous participants, who took part in a recent programme survey, highlighted the transformative and collaborative learning environment; a supportive structure enabled participants to flourish creatively and become leaders of change in their organisations. The practical and student-centered approach to learning was also revealed insofar as the course is tailored to meet practitioners’ needs in the workplace.
