I also applied to Harvard's QPAE. Looking at previous threads it appears that Harvard generally calls admits the 3rd Friday of February. Can't remember where I read that (I'll investigate later and if it was for a different discipline I'll throw a mea culpa out there).

Good luck to all of us :)

Good luck to everyone! I believe the doctoral decisions are made in advance of March too.

Which strand of TIE are you most interested in? I already have undergraduate experience in educational technology design, so I plan to focus on the Research, evaluation, and assessment stand.

lilgreycells, could you please post when you hear anything from the QPAE program? I will do the same.

I've seen in the "results search", that in 2010 people were notified of the decision on the program somewhere around Feb. 26.

I have applied for Ed.M. only. So i think strand selection doesn't apply to me.

Sure I'll definitely post on here if I hear any news! And hmm yes I see what you're saying. So more than likely in one of my fevered "must discover timeline for when I will be notified" excursions I jumbled up the dates for Harvard. 2010 is around the 26th and 2011 is around the 24th (looking at the HGSE 201x threads in the ed section). So mea culpa!

Did you read through the TIE handbook? They outlined three strands within the program: Design and development of educational technologies, Transformation of education with new technologies, and Research, evaluation, and assessment. Just curious which interested you the most lol

Airwick - I applied to the TIE program... I'm a bit nervous because I haven't seen too many teachers applying to the program. Do you know the make up? My interest is in modifying technology for younger learners and helping teachers embed technology into their classroom.

Master's applicants (or Ph.D. applicants who think they might get moved down to the M.Ed.) - how do you feel about the average debt load that Harvard warns about for this program?

The program I applied to sounds wonderful; the funding not so much. OK, right now it's counting chickens, but is anyone else afraid they'll make a foolish financial decision for this program? There have been posters in the program and recent graduates who rave about how the program is worth it. I'd like to talk to graduates five or ten years after - wonder if they would make the same choice to attend.

Masters in IEP.

Haven't found anyone else here applying for the same program. I'm getting so nervous that I'm stalking like everyone on Harvards IEP facebook page....so sad.

yumpeh12- did you apply to other programs as well?

I'm a little worried since I'm applying as a senior in college and thus, I don't have much full-time work experience...

Yes, I did.

Peabody, UPenn, GWU and TC.

Well, no need to worry now. You will just have to wait and see, but I am sure you are fine...especially for some of the schools you applied to.

Personally, I think it's terrific to see someone with classroom experience applying to TIE. You would undoubtedly enrich conversations about technology in the classroom. I know they construct the cohort based on people with complimentary talents and backgrounds, so I think you're well positioned for a spot! The executive director of the non-prof organization I work for is an alumna of HGSE... She offered to put my in contact with some TIE alums. I will definitely ask him or her about their cohort!

As for stalking... You can utilize Google to search Linkedin.com for students and alumni. Go to Google.com then type in site:linkedin.com NAME OF PROGRAM. You can browse through public profiles and check out their stats lol Pretty neat

For instance:
https://www.google.c...iw=1680&bih=847

I searched "site:linkedin.com technology innovation, and education 2011"
