Learning Programs

The Technologies in Education Program consists of four specialized learning programs, as seen below. 

The Master's of Arts (M.A.) program is intended for people interested in innovating, developing, designing, implementing and assessing technology-enhanced environments in education, communities, industry and government; additionally, for those interested in developing academic careers as researchers and teachers in the field of educational technologies in colleges and Universities. Graduates of the program go on to many professions, such as academic careers in educational technology, teaching in higher-educational institutions, teacher professional development programs, as technology coordinators in K-12 schools, educational departments in high-tech companies, development of educational programs and games, design of technology-enhanced learning environments, and advising governmental institutions in local and state decision-making.
Digital Cities: Technology, Learning, & Leadership

The Digital Cities Project is a unique educational initiative managed by the University of Haifa's Technologies in Education Program.  A group of 22 ethnically mixed teachers and administrators, from Nazareth and Upper Nazareth, respectively, are involved in an intensive academic program.  With a focus on building bridges between the predominantly Arab and Jewish Cities, these students are also committed to unique extra-curricular training that involves conflict mediation, leadership, and co-existence.  Triggered by the  upgrade of the technological infrastructure in the two cities, following the 2006 Lebanon war, Cisco - the central contributor to the “Digital Cities” drive - identified the need to take advantage of the social and educational potential of such a program.

*Note: This is a one-time program for teachers from 2010-2012.
Doctoral Program

The Technologies in Education Doctoral Program is designed for select students, who have earned a Master's Degree (with Thesis), interested in developing their expertise relevant to Education Technologies through deep and extensive research.   The programs doctoral students consist of a vibrant learning community that is engaged intensively with faculty research and teaching M.A. students. The doctoral program consists of several courses, with a primary emphasis on writing and executing an empirical research dissertation.  All doctoral students are under the close supervision of a faculty adviser.  Typically, earning a doctorate takes 4 years.  Exceptional students can also be admitted to the direct M.A. + PhD. track, which bypasses writing of a Master's Thesis.
