People learn throughout their lives: individually, with others, at school or university, at work, and beyond. With new technologies that change all aspects of life, we are constantly looking at how to improve the educational process, pursuing a streamlined 21st-century way of (lifelong) learning.
With this specialization, you will be equipped to optimize and redesign instructional materials for various objectives, diverse audiences, and different contexts. This specialization, offered by our Department of Instructional Technology (IST), is one-of-a-kind in the Netherlands: it is the only programme that connects psychological insights on learning with guidelines for the instructional design of lessons, courses, learning arrangements and environments, while giving technology a central place. This course will teach you to conduct problem analyses, design prototypes, and evaluate designs. After graduating, you will have numerous options open to you as a 21st -century Learning Sciences psychologist.
