Student Testimonials

I applied for the MA Education and Technology (MAET) program through the TISSNET exam. The written test assessed critical thinking, English language proficiency, and general awareness. The interview with the panel was both engaging and enlightening, offering valuable insights into the course. My motivation for applying to this program was to expand my existing knowledge and discover new avenues for personal growth and research.

The MAET course stood out to me because of its diverse curriculum, focusing on establishing a solid educational foundation and examining each subject through the lens of technology. The faculty members bring a wealth of diverse backgrounds and have been incredibly supportive throughout our learning journey. Their dedication to ensuring each student comprehends and applies concepts practically is truly inspiring.

The course also facilitated industry connections through seminars and guest lectures. These experiences helped me grasp the course's relevance and understand our roles as tech educators within the industry, including the challenges we can address using technology.

Given my role as a learning and development professional, this course has significantly improved my understanding of my learners. I can now apply the various concepts learned in class to create tailored training materials and deliver them more effectively. I am enthusiastic about delving into research, learning, and exploring the intersection of education and technology from a fresh perspective. I am grateful to be part of this transformative journey.
