Major Studies

The major core courses provide students with a solid foundation on AI and educational technology and help them understand how to apply their knowledge across educational settings. The major elective courses offer students the flexibility to select courses in AI and educational technology to cater for their interests and needs. The major interdisciplinary course is designed to engage students in understanding the concepts and theories underlying the use of educational technologies in language learning and assessment from cross-disciplinary perspectives.

The internship provides students with practical experiences and contexts to integrate and apply their knowledge and skills of AI and educational technology in the workplace. Students are required to complete an internship in a relevant organization or company related to AI and educational technology, where they can further cultivate skills and knowledge developed in the programme. They need to work in full-time mode and complete about 200 working hours of service for an assigned organization. To equip students with the basic concepts and skills required in a work environment, pre-internship workshops will be conducted. Students are expected to formulate a work schedule which has to be agreed both by the internship organization and the Internship Coordinator of EdUHK prior to the commencement of their internship.

Final Year Project

The Final Year Project (FYP) comprises of two courses:

  • Honours Project I / Capstone Project I: Research Methods and Proposal
  • Honours Project II: Research Report / Capstone Project II: Project Output

The FYP focuses on exposing students to essential knowledge and skills for conducting research or capstone projects.

Electives / Minor

From the electives/minor domain, students can freely take courses offered by any academic departments of the University to suit their career aspirations and interests. Minors such as Coding, Design and Technology, Creativity and STEM/STEAM, and Design of STEM Lessons are related to the programme, details will be available after the admission of the programme.

General Education

From the general education domain, students can broaden their intellectual horizon by making connections among different areas of knowledge and between their formal studies and life outside the classroom, and strengthening their capacity for sound thinking and good judgement.

Language Enhancement

Students in the programme are expected to develop the ability to communicate effectively in English and Chinese (including Putonghua). To assist them in meeting this goal, the Centre for Language in Education (CLE) will offer a comprehensive package of mandatory credit-bearing and mandatory non-credit bearing language enhancement activities, which comprise two 3-cp English courses and one 3-cp Chinese course.

Medium of Instruction

The programme will mainly be conducted in English. All Major courses will be taught in English. For some non-Major courses, Putonghua or Cantonese will be adopted as the medium of instruction when the language is considered to be most effective for teaching.

Career Prospects/Professional Qualifications

This programme prepares graduates to be capable of taking up technical and support positions (e.g. computer programmer, data scientist, IT technician, software developer, e-learning resources designer, educational technology support, as well as teaching assistant in schools, publishing, community and social services, government and non-government organizations), with the possibility to progress further to senior positions like systems analyst and educational technology manager. Graduates can also pursue postgraduate study in the field of AI, education or information technology.
