Learning, Education, and Technology (LET) is a full-time two-year international master’s program. After completing the program, students are awarded a Master of Arts (Education) degree. The core of the education consists of three theoretical viewpoints: self-regulated learning, collaborative learning, and technology-enhanced learning. Each of these aspects is discussed both in theory and in practice.

The program aims to develop knowledge and competencies needed in modern education, namely skills for designing, conducting, assessing and analyzing versatile learning situations both in face-to-face and technology-enhanced learning contexts. Working-life connections are highlighted throughout the program. The studies are implemented in collaboration with national and international research and teaching partners.

LET program is built on over 20 years of groundbreaking research in the Learning and Educational Technology Research Unit. The unit performs top research on learning sciences in collaboration with international networks by investigating how people learn. LET students are in close connection with the latest research in their everyday studies.

Knowledge about how people learn, especially through collaboration and teamwork, is an essential factor in today’s working life. Also, flexible and versatile use of information and communication technology is one key competence in today’s education. The master’s program equips the students with a combination of strong theoretical knowledge of learning and collaboration, and diverse use of technology and social media that promotes learning. Further, while studying in an international master’s program, students are able to develop their language skills and skills for multicultural collaboration.

Graduates from the program are competent in duties where knowledge of learning processes and the use of technology are needed. This degree does not constitute a formal teaching qualification as such but students’ educational background, working experience, and own interests affect the career paths of the graduates.
