This partnership provides the EDA with a greatly enhanced online infrastructure to create a seamless student experience and significantly extend the scope and reach of our graduate programs. EDA offerings include master’s and doctoral programs in educational leadership and licensing programs for principals, superintendents, and curriculum directors. Position responsibilities include, but not are necessarily limited to, teaching five graduate-level courses per academic year, developing and implementing a research agenda, curriculum development, advising graduate students, and chair dissertations-in-practice, assessment of learning outcomes, and service to the department, university, community and profession. This is a nine-month position; opportunities for summer teaching are typically available. The successful candidate is expected to contribute to the development and success of EDA through teaching (face-to-face, hybrid, and online), research, and service. An essential responsibility of this position will be to assist in developing an Ed.D. program in conjunction with our 2U partner. This position also provides the opportunity to engage in school and community partnerships, which may require off-site travel.
