Digital Education Leadership (MEd)

Program Description

School of Education Graduate Faculty

The Master of Education (MEd) in Digital Education Leadership is designed for educators and staff who would like to specialize in helping teachers and administrators explore how technology can be used to enhance teaching, learning, and professional productivity.

This degree is specifically designed for those who wish to become technology coaches, technology facilitators, instructional technology coordinators, or educational technologists.

The Digital Education Leadership master’s degree is aligned with ISTE standards for coaches and with the relevant NETP goals and recommendations.

The program begins with an orientation course and concludes with a practicum that provides you with practical, on-the-job experience, applying what you have learned in the program with real teachers, learners, and administrators.

Each course is team-taught by a full-time SPU faculty member and an experienced practitioner in the field. Courses are delivered asynchronously using a project-based learning model with weekly synchronous interactions between instructors and students. A strong emphasis is placed on using only open educational resources (OERs) for course content. Open access and free tools are used where possible. As a digital program, the use of paper is kept to a minimum.
