CMU to offer online doctoral degree in educational technology

Posted: Updated:
MT. PLEASANT, MI (WNEM) -

Central Michigan University will launch a new online doctoral educational technology program this fall. ?

CMU officials say the D.E.T. will prepare students for a wide array of leadership positions in PK-12 schools, virtual schools, community colleges, four-year colleges and universities, as well as other government, corporate, industrial and military settings.

CMU officials say D.E.T. faculty are experts in pursuing innovative ways to establish and maintain an online community of learning, one that supports the kind of interaction and intellectual collegiality traditionally associated with successful face-to-face doctoral programs.

"The advisor-advisee and student-to-student learning that occurs both in and out of courses at the doctoral level is so important," Michael DeSchryver, director of the program, said. "We are excited to explore how a variety of online tools might comprise a learning environment that extends traditional learning management systems. In so doing, we hope to foster a unique and rewarding doctoral learning environment that meets the needs of today's adult learners and taps into some of the primary affordances of online communication that may actually enhance the key relationships at this level."

The D.E.T. is offered by CMU's College of Education and Human Services in conjunction with the university's Global Campus. It's a 54-credit-hour program consisting of 12 courses, an independent inquiry project and a dissertation.

"This program allows students to demonstrate and build upon their existing competencies while they develop new knowledge and skills in instructional technology, research and practical applications appropriate to their professional goals, both in the U.S. and globally," Ray Francis, teacher education and professional development and D.E.T. program faculty member, said.

Students can apply for the D.E.T. here [hyperlink apply.cmich.edu] by May 1 for priority consideration for the Fall 2015 cohort. Additional information is available here or call 877-268-4636.
