M.Ed. Applied Digital Learning Online

Program Description

The Master of Applied Digital Learning Online at Lamar University is a collaborative learner-centered program that embraces technological innovation through collaboration and active and authentic learning. In creating significant learning environments (CSLE) by giving learners choice ownership and voice through authentic learning opportunities (COVA) we help our learners grow into digital leaders who can embrace the opportunities of the future.


In our online program, we create and model significant learning environments where the learner takes control and ownership of their learning. Through authentic learning opportunities ADL students learn how to purposefully assemble all the key components of effective learning and create their own significant learning environments that will then, in turn, help their learners to learn how to learn.

You will be able to:

  • Develop appropriate strategies to lead organizational change
  • Understand the leadership qualities necessary for supporting disruptive innovation
  • Research and assess the role a growth mindset plays in creating effective learning environments
  • Identify, investigate, and understand contemporary issues relevant to local and global contexts
  • Distinguish learner-centered instructional methods from teacher-centered ones and identify technologies that support each method type
  • Compare and contrast inquiry-based theories and methods as they relate to digital teaching and learning
  • Construct learning objectives, assessment items, and learning activities based on expected outcomes for online learners
  • Develop and support diverse communities of learners and reflect on how these collaborations can enhance your own and your community's learning.
  • Explore how adopting a Learner’s Mindset can enhance learning and prepare learners for life.
