The Curriculum and Educational Technology (CET) doctoral concentration addresses the ever-increasing demand for educational leaders who understand the effective use of technology in maximizing student achievement, as well as educators' professional development. Students will explore, design, and evaluate curriculum-based educational technology applications as they are, and will be, used in a wide variety of K-12 and adult learning contexts and systems. They will also understand and implement effective educational technology professional development models and practices appropriate for K-12 teachers, K-12 administrators, and post-secondary faculty.
CET students' program work will be supported by and culminate with development of a focused line of research in curriculum and educational technology. In short, CET students will develop the skills and dispositions necessary to serve as leaders in integrating educational technologies into teaching and learning.
