Preparing Ed.D. Students to Conduct Group Dissertations
Browne-Ferrigno, Tricia; Jensen, Jane McEldowney
Innovative Higher Education, v37 n5 p407-421 Nov 2012
In this article we present an overview of a recently launched cohort-based Ed.D. program that prepares participants to conduct group dissertations. The program, a hybrid model of online learning activities and monthly face-to-face class sessions, is delivered through a partnership between a university's college of education and the administrative office of a statewide system of community and technical colleges. Discussion begins with a review of the pedagogical rationale that informed program design and instructional practices, followed by a presentation of key program elements tracing the development of the cohort through an innovative, collaborative dissertation process still in progress.
