Yesterday, I received an important announcement from Ted Frick, Professor and Chair of the Department of Instructional Systems Technology at Indiana University, Bloomington. Full disclosure: I am an alumnus of IU and this program, so I have a bunch of loyalty and affection for the program and its people. I don’t pretend to be objective or dispassionate, but I do think this is a great opportunity for a lot of our own graduate students, who are looking for a top tier online doctoral program.
Here is Ted’s announcement:
I am pleased to announce that the new online Ed.D. in IST has very recently been approved by the Indiana Commission for Higher Education.
You can read about this in yesterday’s press release:
More information will be forthcoming as we begin to advertise this new program on our IST website and through IUconnectED. We expect the launch date to be in August, 2012, and to begin accepting applications later this fall.
I did not realize, until I read the press release, that IST is offering the first online doctorate at Indiana University.
