Information and Communication Technologies in Education Doctoral Program (Ph.D., 2 - 5 Years)
As the Internet and related technologies continue to evolve, businesses and school boards across all around the world are turning to technology in the classroom to help engaging students more effectively in the learning process, to improve the quality of education, and to enhance the performance of students. As a result, the demand continues to increase for teachers who want to expand their skills in the integration of information and communication technologies into their teaching practices. To help meet this rising demand, we are offering new PhD program in ICT in Education (ICTE).
PhD degree in ICTE is designed to provide advanced professional studies at graduate level to develop capabilities essential to the effective design, evaluation, and delivery of technology-based instruction and training (e.g. software development, multimedia development, assistive technology modifications, web-based development, and distance learning).
The program is intended
- to prepare educators to assume leadership roles in the integration of both existing and emerging educational and information and communication technologies into the school curriculum or instructional activities,
- to provide graduate-level instructional opportunities for several populations (e.g., classroom teachers, corporate trainers, educational software developers, educational system designers, etc.) that need to acquire both technological competencies and an understanding of sound instructional design principles and techniques, and
- to make informed decisions or recommendations regarding adoption of existing or emerging educational and information technologies in a learning environment.
