The Master of Education is an interactive online program that allows you to work with leading-edge technology and to be part of an international, dynamic, collaborative learning environment.

General information

The Master of Education (MEd) is unique and at the leading edge in both its objectives and approaches to learning online. The program deals with the most recent issues around the interactions between digital technology and education, and the professors approach these issues using techniques that favour collaborative learning, co-construction of knowledge and peer tutoring. The field of Education and Digital Technologies within the program builds on the institutional strengths of information and communication technologies at UOIT

Students will take their courses completely online, which includes weekly video conferencing meetings.

The MEd program is available with either a course only or project option; however, all students will commence the program in the course only option. Students may request a transfer to the project option after the successful completion of the first four courses.


Education and Digital Technologies builds on the institutional strengths of information and communication technologies at UOIT.
