The EdD degree program prepares students for a variety of careers (design, communication,
instruction, etc.) in settings such as K-12 education, corporate and government centers, and higher education institutes. Students study the work of numerous researchers and theorists working within the fields of instruction, learning, communication, information, and design. This includes those who have proposed theoretical models of the connections between external events of instruction and internal events of cognition and learning.
The EdD program in instructional technology moves beyond the foundations of distance education, instructional design, and technology integration to focus on advanced application and research. Students apply design, development, and evaluation principles to explore authentic challenges and develop real solutions in diverse settings. Through these experiences, students learn how to use advanced research methods to explore workplace problems, design and deliver solutions, and implement and evaluate change. Emphasis is placed on in-depth mentoring and collaboration, advanced research, development of real-world applications, and training solutions offered through both face-to-face and distance delivery platforms.
