EDUC 8011 - Foundations for Doctoral Study in Curriculum, Instruction, and Assessment


(6 sem. cr.) Providing systemic leadership at the district, regional, state, or federal level in curriculum, instruction, and assessment is a complex, challenging process. This course is a foundation for education professionals to navigate this process and lead so that they can promote the success of all K–12 students within their organizations by developing quality educational programs. Education professionals examine the critical elements of a framework for leading for excellence, including curriculum, instruction, and assessment; data-driven instructional improvement; professional learning time for improvement; and leadership skills that produce results. They also learn the process for completing their doctoral degree successfully by examining how Walden University supports them in developing facility with Walden’s online learning environment; understanding of the university’s and the program’s support systems, expectations, and outcomes; and doctoral-level critical-thinking, research, and writing skills.
