The Doctor of Philosophy in Interdisciplinary Learning and Teaching (ILT) is a degree program that examines learning and teaching from an interdisciplinary perspective; focusing on varied approaches to teaching and learning from within and across various disciplines.

The Doctoral program objectives include:

Preparation of educational researchers who examine the theories, philosophies and multiple paradigms that inform learning and teaching from an interdisciplinary perspective with respect to the varied ways of knowing, situated cognition, and sociocultural contexts, as well as curricular and instructional development;
Development of educational leaders who seek ways to address educational and societal issues through multiple perspectives and will work to make major contributions to the improvement of education for culturally, linguistically, and economically diverse populations across the human lifespan; and,
Preparation of educational researchers to assume the roles of university and community college faculty members, public school teachers/leaders, and adult education and human resource development educators who address, analyze, evaluate and reform learning and teaching through interdisciplinary approaches in varied sociocultural contexts.
