Technology, Innovation, and Education | Harvard Graduate School of Education

The Technology, Innovation, and Education (TIE) Program nurtures creative leaders in education toward researching and designing new technologies and media that promote powerful teaching and engaged learning.

TIE asks you to consider, “Who are the users, and what educational challenges are they grappling with?” — choosing the medium or technology that delivers the most effective learning experience for your specific goal. Technology is the means, not the mission, for harnessing innovation and creativity to improve educational outcomes for all learners.

Whether it’s a course on designing cutting-edge technologies, a practicum on large-scale distance learning, or a course on evaluating the impact of educational apps, we concentrate on the cognitive, affective, and social dimensions of learning, not on the bit rate.


Senior Lecturer Joe Blatt, faculty director

TIE is a one-year program for people from a wide variety of academic, professional, and personal backgrounds. No previous computer
