New technologies are revolutionizing education. At this critical juncture in an increasingly complex and competitive world, we need to re-imagine learning design and ride on the power of emerging learning technologies in order to enhance learning environments and improve outcomes. Learning design is a rapidly growing industry that applies to all sectors. In the rapidly evolving education landscape, no effort should be spared to nurture the next generation of learning technology specialists who possess in-depth theoretical and practical perspectives of learning design and demonstrate state-of-the-art technological knowledge and skills to shape the future of education.
The Bachelor of Science (Learning Design and Technology) Programme (JUPAS code: JS4386) is a 4-year integrative programme jointly offered by the Faculties of Education, Engineering and Science. Its design is based on the latest re-formulation of the science of education in which education is cast as “a metadiscipline or discipline of disciplines” to equip learners with knowledge, competencies, and leadership to facilitate learning and development in and beyond the formal education settings. Graduates of the programme will be equipped with multi-disciplinary knowledge in education, technology, and science with education and learning sciences serving as the unifying threads. Not only will students be provided with internship opportunities to consolidate theory-practice integration, but they will also carry out research projects to synthesize multi-disciplinary knowledge and action-science competencies.
Upon completion of the programme, students will have:
K = Knowledge outcomes
S = Skills outcomes
V = Values and attitude outcomes
Graduates of the programme can pursue professional careers in schools, school-sponsoring bodies, universities, government sectors, non-governmental organizations (especially those specializing in solving social problems by means of education), education-related companies and industries in local, regional, and global settings including the Greater Bay Area. Graduates are equipped to serve in a variety of settings where there is an interface between education and STEM, including industries, businesses, schools, non-governmental organizations, and other new and emerging education-related industries. Additionally, graduates who want to pursue a teaching career can continue their study in the teacher professional programmes to obtain a technology- and/or science-related teaching qualification.

“Digital transformation is changing the way we work in every industry, and it has never been more important than now for us to get our next generation ready for such a technology-driven future with necessary digital and problem-solving skills in multicultural contexts. We believe EdTech and e-learning are powerful tools for teachers to achieve this purpose through providing our students a rich and custom learning experience, and we look forward to working closely with this program to empower more educators, and thus together nurture more students to be future-ready.”
