  • To offer outstanding undergraduate and graduate programs in education and digital technology that contribute to the development of highly qualified personnel able to work across a range of educational fields, and to offer these programs in a manner that is accessible to anyone from anywhere in the world;
  • To conduct leading-edge research in education and digital technology that focuses on all aspects of how and why digital technologies are transforming learning; and
  • To seek out and participate in local, national and international research partnerships with those who share our desire to develop the individual and collective intelligence, ability and social consciousness of educators.
