Welcome to BSc (Hons) Education and Digital Learning

This degree has been designed to help prepare students to develop as digitally-trained educational professionals who are able to innovate, solve problems, and adapt to the changing demands of education.

Students can gain practical experience that can be applied in the real world. They will have the chance to undertake work experience in every year of study where they will be able to work closely with peers and academic staff during personal tutorial sessions, as well as undertaking put-it-into-practice (PiiP) weeks. We encourage students to challenge themselves through problem-based throughout their studies.

The course aims to provide an innovative environment and students will be able to explore new approaches to digital education and digital learning tools. Subject to annual approval, students will be given their own electronic device to use alongside School equipment including VR headsets, digital tablets, and content-recording tools (e.g. green screens and cameras) to ensure they are equipped for a variety of both digital and workplace contexts.

Students will have the opportunity to learn about a wide range of topics, structured by the four pillars of education: history, sociology, psychology, and philosophy. They can select modules tailored to their interests, including special educational needs and disability (SEND) or studies of childhood, for example. As well as this grounding in education, they will receive dedicated core modules focused on digital learning and surrounding issues such as globalisation, social justice in education, and ethical practice.

How You Study

Teaching will take place in the form of lectures, seminars, workshops, and small groups. An online virtual learning environment is also used to support and enhance face-to-face teaching.

The first year of study will focus on introductory core modules to explore fundamental theories of learning, digital learning, research skills and digital curriculum design and delivery. Students will discover how learning takes place and how we can deliver effective content to a range of students, both digitally and using more traditional methods.

A tutorial system operates throughout the three-year course. The first year provides opportunities for students to develop their own personal and academic skills and can provide a sound basis for transition to the second year. The course also includes a series of scheduled meetings with a personal tutor.

In the second and third years of study, teaching will focus on special educational needs and diversity, research methods in education, and advancing knowledge of digital teaching and learning methods and wider issues associated with these. Students are able to choose an optional module to support their own specific interests and work more closely with peers from other courses in the School.

The final year of study involves the completion of an extended research-based project. This, along with further elective modules, and an advanced digital learning module, aims to provide opportunities for students to build on their own interests and may be determined by their career aspirations.

How you are assessed

The nature of assessment varies across the three levels of the course. Assessments at levels one and two focus on the acquisition and understanding of knowledge and skills. In contrast, the level three assessments place far greater emphasis on the ability to apply, analyse, and evaluate knowledge.

Students assessment methods may include written essays, posters, discussion groups, poster presentations, case studies, and multimedia portfolios. We aim to assess students using a diverse range of methods as part of our School's commitment to equality, diversity and inclusion.

We also encourage students to consider the possibilities of taking part in the Lincoln Award: http://lincolnsu.com/lincolnaward while studying with us.

Study Abroad

Students may have the opportunity to undertake self-funded study trips abroad in order to consider the way education systems are delivered overseas. Please note, students who decide to undertake optional trips are responsible for the associated costs, including accommodation, travel, and general living expenses.

Research

This course aims to incorporate research-based opportunities for students, which will provide a chance to gain knowledge and skills required to study aspects of education of specific interest. Students are encouraged throughout the degree to undertake small-scale research projects in an area of education such as learning or teaching approaches, comparisons of global education systems, studies of curricula, or special educational needs (SEN). The course has been designed to provide students with a strong base for postgraduate study and beyond.

Prioritising Face-to-Face Teaching

At the University of Lincoln, we strive to ensure our students’ experience is engaging, supportive, and academically challenging. Throughout the Coronavirus pandemic, we have adapted to Government guidance to keep our students, staff, and community safe. All remaining Covid-19 legal restrictions in England were lifted in February 2022 under the Government’s Plan for Living with Covid-19, and we have embraced a safe return to in-person teaching on campus. Where appropriate, face-to-face teaching is enhanced by the use of digital tools and technology and may be complemented by online opportunities where these support learning outcomes.

We are fully prepared to adapt our plans if changes in Government guidance make this necessary, and we will endeavour to keep current and prospective students informed. For more information about how we are working to keep our community safe, please visit our coronavirus web pages.

The University intends to provide its courses as outlined in these pages, although the University may make changes in accordance with the Student Admissions Terms and Conditions.
