BS in Design of Learning Technologies
Drexel University School of Education
Corporations, startups, and publishers around the world recognize the need for new products that enhance learning. Drexel’s Bachelor of Science in Design of Learning Technologies prepares students to build the next generation of educational tools and environments. Students learn the interdisciplinary skills and knowledge necessary to design, develop, and implement new educational technology for a variety of settings. Graduates of the program have a solid background of both theory and practice.
Students in the program explore three major themes:
- Cognition and Learning: Cognitive processes and representations underlying knowledge and skill acquisition
- Culture and Society: Social, cultural and organizational aspects of teaching and learning both in and outside of schools
- Design and Technology: Design and evaluation techniques enable the development of new and emerging technologies to support learning and teaching
Coursework across these themes prepares students to design effective educational technologies for a variety of learning environments and audiences. Graduates go on to create innovative educational solutions for organizations such as schools, museums, after school programs and summer camps.
Coursework from three departments builds a solid foundation in human development, educational theory, and technology design:
- The School of Education
- The Westphal College of Media Arts & Design
- The College of Computing and Informatics
Students also benefit from co-op experiences with partners such as Drexel University’s Innovation Neighborhood, Philadelphia schools, software developers, and design firms.
