Course Summary

The TESOL with ICT MA at Brighton is one of a limited number of courses in the UK that allow language teachers to explore the role of media in the teaching and learning of languages, combining academic study with the design and development of materials.

The course is designed for professionals who already have experience of second language teaching, either in the UK or abroad. As with the other MAs in Brighton's English Language Teacher Development programme, it encourages you to locate your enquiries in your own professional context, so you can apply your newly acquired skills and knowledge directly.

The department has an extensive range of digital media capture and editing equipment, its own dedicated computer pool, and access to a television studio in the Checkland building, allowing you to work with the digital tools required for materials design and production. Typical areas for investigation include print, audio, audiovisual, interactive multimedia, podcasting, e‑learning, social software such as blogs and wikis, and interactive electronic whiteboards.
