The Teaching, Learning, and Media Education programme at Tampere University focuses on knowledge and competencies needed to develop and implement high-quality educational environments, practices, and curricula in diverse educational contexts.
The students of the programme will gain a broad understanding of the field of education and educational research. After completing the programme, students have an extensive understanding of the relationships between teaching and learning in a media-saturated society, and conceptual tools to evaluate and enhance the quality of education.
The meaning of research-based knowledge is emphasized throughout the studies. The programme offers possibilities to choose courses on current topics in education, such as media education, inclusive education, curriculum studies, digital literacies, and game-based learning. In addition, students can select elective studies from the wide range of courses that the multidisciplinary Tampere University community offers.
- The programme consists of versatile subject studies framed in a media-saturated society, including learning in various digital contexts, inclusive education, curriculum studies, assessment, and quality of education.
- The methodological studies and master’s thesis project deepen the expertise. The programme considers education from multiple perspectives, such as educational sciences, pedagogical, philosophical, and sociocultural perspectives.
- Further, students have the possibility to include elective studies from other fields of science into their degree. Collaboration between the Faculty of Education and the Teacher Training School of Tampere University provides students with an indispensable knowledge of the integration of theory and practice in education.
“The University encourages personal development because there is almost no limit to what courses you can take. It is open-minded because the courses include different study options and the teachers are willing to communicate. It is very personalised because although you have a major, you are not restricted in what direction you want to go. In one word, I would say you get a lot of freedom while studying at UTA.“
