Providing access to a culturally diverse special education doctoral program through educational technologies

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

The LEAD doctoral program funded by US Department of Education is a blended program of online distance education courses during the academic year and on-site courses during the summer to overcome traditional residence only doctoral program access barriers. Using technology of Web courses, video conference, Google Hangouts, and BBLearn Collaborate, the doctoral program is accessible to students in many locations rather than only in residence students. The special education focus is in Culturally Linguistically Diverse Exceptional-education (CLDE). Six LEAD doctoral students graduated in December 2012 and are now university faculty who teach and conduct research in the CLDE area.
