CTEL’s Ed.D. in leadership and innovation is designed for working professional educators. The next group of students admitted to the three-year program, which holds its classes on ASU’s West campus, will begin their studies in the summer of 2009. The application deadline is Jan. 31.

“Our Ed.D. program has proven extremely popular with educators who want to become more thoughtful, intentional and informed leaders, whether they work in a K-12 setting or with adult learners,” says Suzanne Painter, Ed.D. program director and CTEL’s chair of graduate studies and professional development. “Putting research into action is a key focus of the program. Students conduct multiple studies to learn by doing and to bring about change based upon scholarship.”
