Program Details

The online Doctor of Educational Technology program is designed for those interested in professional research and a rigorous evaluation of educational technology. This online instructional design program is offered in a cohort format, allowing you to progress through the program with the same group of peers. The program prepares participants for a wide array of leadership positions in K-12 schools, virtual schools, community colleges, four-year colleges, and corporate settings. 

The curriculum is designed to provide you with the underpinnings to understand and to act effectively upon the challenges confronting educational organizations. Coursework covers the critical areas of study for future educational leaders through foundation, organizational, and leadership analyses. During this program, you’ll create a practical dissertation of several short, publishable studies that provide a holistic perspective on a topic of your choice. A published article upon course completion can be an immediate CV booster, and can give you the edge you need to advance your career in instructional design.
