Second Cycle Study program   in Application of ICT in Teaching - 60 ECTS is a cohesive program designed to enhance the knowledge, skills, and professional development of teachers and others through modern approaches in the adoption of new knowledge. The studies focus on effective use of technology in education and teaching. The outcome from these studies results in gaining new knowledge about how to design a program based on technology, the usage of information technologies for the preparation and maintenance of classes, usage and development platforms for learning, creating digital educational content, e-learning, educational software, as well as multimedia projects in the classroom. The study program provides professional development for teachers and others interested in education studies.
The studies are based on the latest research and practices in e-learning and enhance learning through ICT. The study program develops practical skills and analytical understanding of ICT and e-learning and its role in professional practice.

Students who will finish this master will be able to:
- implement the ICT in the process of teaching and evaluation - control;
- design modern courses;
- designing courses for students with special needs;
- monitoring and understanding of trends in ICT development and its application in modern teaching.
