Long time reader, but I have not posted in awhile. To make a long story as short as possible, I received my MS in Instructional Technology from ECU online with many thanks to this board for making me more comfortable with online learning. I graduated about 4 years ago and loved the program. Dr. Abbie Brown at ECU is as good as it gets. He was recently named the university teacher of the year in NC (the first ever exclusively online teacher to receive the award). After I earned my degree, I was hired as an instructional designer for a community college. I love my job. I have worked 4 years as an instructional designer in a college setting. Now, I want to pursue a doctorate degree to better my understanding of the field and receive a terminal degree in my field. I applied to Boise State's Ed.D. in Educational Technology program, but did not make it in the program. It seems to be very competitive (30%ish percent acceptance rate). I made it to the interview process, but was not accepted. My question is, what advice would you give me regarding my next step? Re-apply to Boise State next year? I am also looking at Wyoming's Instructional Technology Ed.D. even though their tuition is going up substantially. Any advice would be greatly appreciated, thanks.
