The Curriculum and Learning Design doctoral concentration addresses the need for administrators and teacher leaders to understand innovative curriculum and instruction for K-12 education and develop the leadership skills to successfully implement them. Students will explore a wide variety of K-12 curricula and instructional applications including the effective use of educational technology. They will also be able to focus on a particular curriculum and instruction interest from course offerings in elementary, secondary, gifted, reading, and special education. Students’ programs will be supported by and culminate in a focused line of research in curriculum and instruction. The aim of the program is to prepare administrators, teacher leaders, and teacher educators to meet the curriculum and instruction challenges that face K-12 education today and in the future.
