Teacher Leadership Ed.D.

This 2½ year doctoral program is for teachers in school settings who want to build their skills in teacher leadership, including coaching, leading professional development, and curriculum design and implementation. This concentration will allow students to develop the expertise take new roles in Teacher Leadership, understand the dynamics involved in teacher change, and lead positive personal and organizational change around critical Teacher Leadership issues.

This innovative program is unique in providing personal mentoring from dedicated faculty-practitioners, supporting students through a cohort-model and built-in components to complete the program successfully, incorporating elements of business, political, and social leadership, and providing a practitioner focus within the larger context of the role of education in a democracy. Our program is designed to produce leaders who have a deep understanding of teacher education, who are change agents capable of initiating and sustaining positive change, and who are reflective learners with skills to gather information in a democratic environment.
