Building a Conceptual Framework within a Diverse Graduate School Environment
Lloyd-Zannini, Louis P.; Gallien, Louis B., Jr.
Christian Higher Education, v5 n2 p125-140 Jul 2006
The School of Education of a mid-Atlantic region, graduate-only Christian institution sought to build a cohesive, indigenous conceptual framework to assure that school instruction and scholarship were aligned with university and school foundational documents, especially the mission and vision statements. A visiting professor was engaged to initiate and guide the process. Over the course of three years, school foundational documents were studied and revised, instructional documents and practices were analyzed and critiqued, and a cohesive conceptual framework was generated which is indigenous to, and reflective of, both the school and the university. Sharing of the conceptual framework with other schools within the university, and final revisions of the framework and foundational documents, is ongoing. (Contains 1 figure 4 notes.)
