What will I learn?

The Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) in Curriculum and Instruction (C&I) emphasis in Technology and Teacher Education (T&TE) offered by the Department of Teaching, Learning and Culture (TLAC) targets practitioners and researchers with a specific interest in the scholarship related to technology and the various stages of teacher education.

Scholars in the T&TE Ph.D. program will be encouraged to develop research agendas to investigate relevant issues in the use of technology and preparation and continuing development of teachers in K-16 settings. The degree plan for this program builds on a strong foundation of all TLAC’s Ph.D. program and provides the flexibility for students to explore and develop in multiple areas of technology and teacher education. Each student will be required to develop a level of technological competency to be able to use technology as an instructional delivery system.


This 64-hour doctoral program is designed to develop effective teaching and research tools that include educational opportunity and workplace access.

Students come from a variety of backgrounds, possess a wide array of experiences and achieve national exposure before graduation. As a result of mentorship by technology and teacher education faculty and through participation in extant research projects, graduate students will present their work at local, regional and national conferences as well as publish in relevant journals.
