The Process in Completing a Nontraditional Group Dissertation in Practice for the Carnegie Project on the Education Doctorate, the Ed.D. Educational Leadership Program at Lynn University
Vickers, Jerome
Journal for Leadership and Instruction, v15 n1 p39-43 Spr 2016
This study focused on how a cohort of scholarly practitioners extended the traditional Doctorate in Education (Ed.D.) model at Lynn University by undertaking a nontraditional group Dissertation in Practice (DiP). The participants were a cohort of 11 scholarly practitioners known as Cohort 5 who became the first Lynn University doctoral students to extend the traditional cohort model beyond the relationship building and coursework archetype, and undertake a nontraditional group DiP that involved all group members working collaboratively. In 2007, the Carnegie Foundation decided to re-envision the Ed.D. as a way to help address the needs of 21st century educational settings. The Foundation created the Carnegie Project for the Education Doctorate (CPED) and brought together a number of Research 1 (R1) universities designated from the Carnegie Foundation during Phase I of analysis, with Lynn University included. The purpose of this initiative was to redesign the Ed.D. so that it could be recognized and distinguished as a purposeful degree specifically for scholarly practitioners.
