About the Program
The curriculum and instruction major is for those interested in a career in the field of education but not necessarily classroom teaching. This major is non-teaching license program. It provides an educational leadership focus in an increasingly diverse, interconnected, and technology-rich world and values collaboration, community, diversity, global perspectives, inquiry, and reflection. Research on various aspects of educational practices is conducted and disseminated. A focus on theory-into-practice leads to new discoveries in the teaching and learning process across a wide variety of educational contexts. Sample signature areas of discovery include:
- Challenges of acquiring academic language for English language learners (ELLs).
- The Science Learning through Engineering Design (SLED) project.
- Study abroad and internationalization efforts by colleges and universities.
- Impact of technology on citizenship and citizenship education.
- Postsecondary learner’s development of mathematics content knowledge.
