Dr. Robert Hancock
Master of Education in Educational Technology Leadership
Southeastern Louisiana University is excited about the potential of Southeastern’s
newest master’s degree program. The Louisiana Board of Regents approved a re-designed
Master of Education in Technology Leadership and it will be administered by the Department
of Educational Leadership and Technology within the College of Education. It should
be apparent to everyone that technological-changes drive our society and technology
is a major force throughout the world. Our program is designed to address this rapid
change by providing needed knowledge and skills for candidates enrolled in the program.
Additionally, you may be interested in the Louisiana Department of Education’s approved
technology certification programs. If so, you can take specific courses to accomplish
this professional development goal in order to advance your career.
We have an experienced, talented faculty to guide you through the program’s offerings. Take a look at our faculty and our degree program. If you are a classroom teacher, the Technology Leadership Program can provide new insights, knowledge and skills to enhance your instructional experiences in the classroom. As a teacher, you may have aspirations to become a school or district technology leader to administer technology initiatives. This program can help you accomplish this.
Perhaps you are not a K-12 teacher but are interested in a career in technology providing leadership to your current organization or perhaps you are looking at new employment opportunities. Talk with us about how the Technology Leadership master’s program might help you in that regard.
The world is changing and you want to keep abreast of that change personally as well as professionally. You owe it to yourself to look at what we are offering and then talk with us, send us an email or come by to talk with us.
Regular admission to the Educational Technology Leadership Program is selective and requires a favorable evaluation by the program faculty and is contingent upon the receipt of all application required documents. When all admissions requirements have been met, the Graduate Coordinator will complete the necessary notification/acceptance papers for the Graduate School.
