The Bachelor of Arts (BA) in Educational Studies and Digital Technology (ESDT) program recognizes the growing importance of formal and informal lifelong learning to meet the expanding professional development needs of post-secondary instructors and staff in across community, corporate, professional and public-sector workplace environments.  As the instructional demands of the institutions and organizations in these sectors continue to grow, and as human resources departments increasingly acknowledge the economic benefits of just-in-time online learning, there is an increased need for knowledgeable, skilled and innovative individuals who can provide adult education in the digital age.

Our BA in ESDT program aims to prepare a new kind of expert who:

  • Has extensive, critical knowledge and understanding of histories, theories, policies an practices of adult education.
  • Possesses specialized knowledge and competency in optimal uses of digital technologies to support adult learning.
