Increasing motivation and autonomy of pre-sessional university English students through project-based integration of technology and digital literacies skills*
*I was awarded the School of Education Platt Prize 2013 for academic excellence in a Master’s degree for my coursework and dissertation.
At the moment, I don’t intend to upload the complete dissertation. If you are interested in reading it or would like the bibliography, contact me.
Modules I took in my MA course
I did my Master’s at the University of Manchester because they offered a combination of educational technology and TESOL (as of 2012 this course has been replaced with the MA DTCE (TESOL) course). The inclusion of EdTech was a key criterion for me. The modules I took allowed me not only to learn more about the use of educational technology for language teaching and learning purposes but also about the relevant theories underpinning learning with technology, frameworks and pedagogy, so that the technology is employed and integrated in a principled manner.
