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. Such scholarship connects research with practice, is informed by our mutual belief in socio-cultural and constructivist theories of how people learn, promotes the advocacy of excellence and equity in education for all learners, and facilitates the development of teachers as leaders.
The UNC Greensboro School of Education was named one of the 2022 “Top Graduate Schools of Education” by the U.S. News & World Report.
Research interests include teacher education, math education, science education, learning, development, motivation, language and literacy, social studies education, equity education, ESL, and citizenship education.
