The Carnegie Project on the Education Doctorate
Perry, Jill Alexa
Change: The Magazine of Higher Learning, v47 n3 p56-61 2015
Beginning with 21 US schools of education, the Carnegie Project on the Education Doctorate (CPED) has created a network of education faculty who are differentiating the EdD from the PhD in order to better meet the needs of their practitioner-scholar students. Their discussions center on two questions: "What are the knowledge, skills, and dispositions that professionals working in education should demonstrably have," and "How do we prepare our students to have them?" Participants then backward-design their programs to develop these competencies. Faculty leaders develop ideas nationally and implement them with local variations. The results are programs that differ in their particulars but that share certain aspects of program design. Generally, admissions, course credits and delivery, faculty, student support, and the capstone design all differ from those of the traditional PhD. A list of resources is provided.
