Ed.D Higher and Adult Education

Why did you choose Higher and Adult Education?

The program was beneficial. The learning experiences resulted in improvement in not only my teaching, but my leadership style. The faculty at University of Memphis gave me insight on how to be more effective in my career in Mexico. Each one of the teachers was marvelous.

How did this degree prepare you or improve your preparation for your current role?

The program provided me the opportunity to really challenge where to channel my strengths and to define skills that needed to be expanded in the educational environment. The contact with high tech environments allowed me to dream new educational possibilities, think about how to implement new paradigms in Mexican settings and provided me with tools to build innovation from the ground.

What impact has your degree had on your life or career?

The Doctor of Education degree allows me to share my knowledge in different educational settings. The balance provided by the curriculum allows an integration of: administrative training, strategic planning, leadership style, college and universities culture, students centered experiences and effective use of technology. These elements guide my vision in challenges related to: (1) creation of new paradigms linking educational technology with social needs at University settings, (2) improvement of retention and student satisfaction, (3) promotion of innovation among faculty, (4) and development of new online programs, among others.

My current roles in the organization address the consulting services for companies and state organizations promoting human development, educational technology and business improvement. All of this is possible for me thanks not only to the knowledge acquired from The University of Memphis faculty, but also to the passion found in my coaches and teachers.
