Learning Sciences – new doctorate

May 20, 2010

A new and welcome development for the educational technology community.
First of its kind in Ireland – the new structured doctorate in the Learning Sciences at NUI Galway (designed by Dr. Tony Hall of the School of Education and colleagues in the School of Psychology ) gives recognition to the growing importance of ICTs in educational settings.
Learning Sciences is an interdisciplinary field of scientific enquiry, drawing principally on the disciplines of education, psychology and computer science. It endeavours to enhance human development and learning through the design and appropriation of new educational innovations and technologies.
This new doctorate will provide a conceptual framework around key empirical and theoretical issues whilst training students in the design, application and evaluation of learning innovations and technologies, including design-based research and educational technology.
