Educational Studies, Ph.D. Teacher Education and Development Concentration


The TED Ph.D. program is designed to develop scholar-researchers, scholar-teachers, and scholar-activists who generate, understand, and apply usable new knowledge related to the education of novice and experienced teachers.
