Masters in Educational Technology and Applied Learning Science (METALS)

Carnegie Mellon University has a new Masters program in edtech with an emphasis on learning science. Seems like a great way to train for a growing field:

The Professional Masters in Educational Technology and Applied Learning Science (METALS) is a one-year interdisciplinary masters, jointly taught by the Human Computer Interaction Institute and the Psychology Department. The program trains students to design, develop and evaluate evidenced-based programs for learning in settings that range from schools to homes, workplaces to museums, and online to offline learning environments. Graduates will be prepared to take key positions in corporations, universities and schools as designers, developers, and evaluators of educational technologies as well as learning engineers, curriculum developers, learning technology policy-makers, and even chief learning officers.

Students with backgrounds in psychology, education, computer science, design, information technology, or business are encouraged to apply.
