Current faculty research is being conducted on the following topics:
Educational leadership cohort groups form strong bonds that evolve into powerful networks of educational leaders statewide. As research projects evolve, students collaborate with faculty and other students to enhance both teaching and learning. Some of these projects include Dr. Mary Gardiner’s research on the experiences of beginning teachers in rural schools and how school leaders can mentor them effectively. She and her students presented a research paper at the American Educational Research Association (AERA) in New York in March 2008.
Instruction may be live, online or Web-assisted to accommodate the schedules of working professionals. Summer classes meet daily in two four-week sessions or are delivered online. It is possible to take most classes online with advisor approval.
