The MLS&T Research Stream can act as a bridge for PhD studies and is designed for students for who are hoping to pursue a career as an education or learning-sciences a researcher.
By combining the coursework with a dissertation, the Research Stream provides students with hands-on experience using emerging technologies; insight into the many different research specialisations available; and essential knowledge of research methods and methodologies, including those specific to technology-supported learning.
Information about the entry requirements, tuition fees and opportunities for further study associated with both Master of Learning Science and Technology streams – and their component graduate certificate and graduate diploma – is published on the MLS&T homepage.
Research-stream master's candidates must complete eight units of study, including the four core units of study listed on the MLS&T home page and the compulsory unit of study, Learning Technology Research Frontiers (EDPC5025).
Two of the remaining three units of study must come from a dissertation. Applicants choosing to complete their dissertation in one semester should enrol in the unit of study Dissertation (EDPZ6720). Alternatively, dissertation studies may be spread across two semesters by undertaking Dissertation Part 1 (EDPZ6724) followed by Dissertation Part 2 (EDPZ6725).
The final unit of study that must be satisfactorily completed before qualifying for the award of Master of Learning Science and Technology (Research Stream) may be either Workshop on Evaluation of Ed Software (EDPC5012) or Developing a Research Project (EDPK5003).
