Digital Learning (2022)

Digital Learning blends both technical and pedagogical skill sets. It builds knowledge of digital technologies for and in teaching and learning (pedagogical focus) and to develop understanding of teaching and learning which will encourage better design, development, deployment and evaluation of such technologies (technical focus). Digital Learning includes a range of papers from the education, computer science, screen and media, and graphic and design disciplines.

Digital Learning is available as a first major for the Bachelor of Social Sciences (BSocSc). Digital Learning may also be taken as a second major or minor, subject to approval of the Division in which the student is enrolled.

To complete Digital Learning as a single major, students must gain 135 points from papers listed for Digital Learning, including 105 points above 100 level, and 60 points above 200 level. Students must complete DLRNG100, DLRNG200, DLRNG201, DLRNG300 and DLRNG301.

To complete Digital Learning as part of a double major, students must gain 120 points from papers listed for Digital Learning including 90 points above 100 level, and 45 points above 200 level. Students must complete DLRNG100, DLRNG200, DLRNG201, DLRNG300 and DLRNG301.

To complete a minor in Digital Learning, students must complete 60 points from the papers listed for Digital Learning, including at least 30 points above 100 level.
