EDTECH Education Doctorate (Ed.D.)
Students in the Doctor of Education in Educational Technology (EdD) program explore the use of current and emerging technologies for effective and efficient teaching in a dynamic, global society. Areas of particular focus will include online teaching and learning, technology integration, academic technology leadership, innovative teaching in K-12 and higher education, educational software development for the web and mobile platforms, and educational games and simulations.
People who pursue a doctoral degree in educational technology are highly motivated by two things: a passion for applying research to the practice of teaching and learning, and a driving desire to lead and innovate in this ever changing field.
The EdD in Educational Technology program at Boise State University can be completed entirely online; there are no on-campus or in-person requirements. All courses and exams/defenses can be completed at a distance, though in some cases synchronous (same time) attendance is required.
