Curriculum and Instruction

Curriculum & Instruction Program Faculty at KU

The faculty members and instructors at the KU School of Education are dedicated to provide robust learning opportunities related to curriculum & instruction.  You will learn from professionals who have real-world experiences working within classrooms to educate both children and fellow teachers. Prior to their time at KU, our faculty have served in professional roles within public and private school districts across the United States.

Our program faculty and instructors have also taught at Michigan State University, University of Arizona, University of Maryland at College Park, and other universities nationwide.  They have also secured millions of dollars in external funding from national organizations; designed and developed online resources serving thousands of learners; and have conducted research related to e-learning and other types of curriculum development and assessment.

Our curriculum & instruction program faculty also partner with professors from other academic departments at the University of Kansas to ensure that your graduate student experience and learning at KU are both interdisciplinary in nature and grounded in practical experience.
