Non Traditional Doctoral Programs in Education: Success Criteria and Evaluation Strategies.
Soles, Stanley
The term, nontraditional doctoral program implies the primacy of student interests; the utilization of many modes for learning; the deemphasis of time, space and courses in favor of competence and performance. Features of various nontraditional doctoral programs in education are discussed in this symposium. The different programs vary with respect to their philosophy, requirements of the program, administrative structure, instructional methods used, and student role. Three major criteria for evaluating doctoral programs are presented: nature of the doctoral degree itself; basic approach to curriculum and instruction; and results of the program--personal, social, and professional outcomes.
