The Role of Research in the Professional Doctorate
Hochbein, Craig; Perry, Jill A.
Planning and Changing, v44 n3-4 p181-195 2013
The authors argue for a clearer understanding of the role of research in the preparation of educational professionals at the doctoral level. Building on the work of the Carnegie Project on the Education Doctorate (CPED), the authors define the nature of problems of practice, offer three ways in which professional practitioners engage research in their practice, and suggest three guidelines for the development of appropriate and rigorous research preparation in EdD programs.
