The Department of Education at UC Irvine (my main academic department) has proposed a new Ph.D. Program in Education. It has to go through a number of more hurdles before it’s approved by the University of California, but our hope is that the program will be approved to begin in fall 2006. The exciting thing about this for me is that one of the three proposed specializations is in Language, Literacy, and Technology.
I will post updates here as things develop, but I wanted to mention this early on so that those of you who are planning Ph.D. study in the future will keep this possibility in mind.
