M.Ed. Digital Learning and Leading

Online Delivery

Program Description

The Master of Digital Learning and Leading (DLL) 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 the DLL we create and model significant learning environments where the learner takes control and ownership of their learning. Through authentic learning opportunities DLL 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
  • Understand digital citizenship as it relates to professional practice
  • 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
