Doctor of Education: Athabasca University

Athabasca University has the benefit of offering one of the first doctor of education programs, fully online, in North America. The program is cohort-based and accepts 12 students annually. I’ve been teaching in the doctorate program for several years (Advanced Research Methods as well as, occasionally, Teaching & Learning in DE) and supervise 8 (?!) doctoral students currently.

Applications for the fall 2017 start are now being accepted with a January 15, 2017 deadline. Just in case you’re looking to get your doctorate :) . It really is a top program. Terrific faculty and tremendous students.

    George! How are you? I’d love to see you at Stanford in November. Also looking at a doctorate in 2017. Where can I learn more? Hope you’re well! Lenore and I are taking the hubbies to France for cycling and wine in June…next trekking adventure.
