The incumbent will demonstrate innovative teaching methods and will have experience conducting applied research and/or program evaluations in PK-12 or higher education settings. Applicants should demonstrate a commitment to the ideals of Ed.D. education, equity, adult learning, and continuous improvement.

The purpose of the sequence is to provide Ed.D. students with the research knowledge and skills needed to successfully conduct independent applied research for their capstone projects and to prepare them to be effective practitioner-scholars within their organizations. Courses provide students training in both quantitative and qualitative inquiry skills as well as in program evaluation. The successful candidate will teach courses in the research sequence, with a focus on the introductory survey design and quantitative inquiry class, as well as coordinate with instructors of other course sections, liaise with and between the three Ed.D. program directors, and provide methodological support to capstone students in all three Ed.D. programs.
