Emerging Literature

The following publications have emerged from members of the CPED Consortium as a result of their work on the EdD:

General Program Development

Redesigning Professional Education Doctorates: Applications of Critical Friendship Theory to the EdD. Storey, V. A. (Ed.) (2013). Palgrave Macmillan.

The professional education doctorate - the EdD - has long been debated. What should its focus be, how should it be composed, and what should it prepare its recipients to accomplish? What, ultimately, distinguishes it from the PhD in education? The contributors to this volume demonstrate that Critical Friendship Theory can succeed in distinguishing and enriching EdD programs. Drawing on multiple, detailed case studies to examine how the CFT framework can be used to foster innovative pedagogy, develop creative dissertation-in-practice experiences, and resolve problems of practice, they build an argument that the implementation of Critical Friendship Theory helps to enhance the particular contributions EdD program graduates are trained to make.

Placing Practitioner Knowledge at the Center of Teacher Education — Rethinking the Policy and Practice of the Education Doctorate. Co-Editors: Margaret Macintyre Latta & Susan Wunder, University of Nebraska-Lincoln (2012)

 

Educational Leadership Preparation: Innovation and Interdisciplinary Approaches to the Ed.D. and Graduate Education Edited by Gaetane Jean-Marie and Anthony H. Normore (2010).

This book explores the efficacy of innovative and interdisciplinary approaches to educational leadership preparation implemented at universities across the United States that serve K-12 populations in urban, rural, and suburban contexts. This collection of chapters draws from seminal and contemporary literature on preparation programs, the Carnegie Project for Education Doctorate. It demonstrates how theory and research play a pivotal role in the creation of new doctoral programs in educational leadership. The book focuses on trends, issues, challenges, and possibilities that weave commonalities and differentiate structures among seven professional doctorate programs in educational leadership (Ed.D.).

What Does History Reveal About the Education Doctorate? Perry (2012). In Placing practitioner knowledge at the center of teacher education: Rethinking the policy and practice of the Education Doctorate by Margaret Macintyre Latta & Susan Wunder (Eds.) (2012)

This chapter explores the historical roots of the development of professional practice preparation in education with particular attention on the creation of the Ed.D. It also outlines a century of scholarly attempts to distinguish the two degrees and the arguments for and against the elimination of the Ed.D. that have led to the current efforts of the Carnegie Project on the Education Doctorate to reclaim its Education Doctorate and firmly establish the Ed.D. and the degree of choice for education practitioners.

Working Principles for the Professional Practice Doctorate in Education (2009)

As an outcome of Phase I of the CPED initiative, consortium members identified a set of working principles for the development and delivery of Ed.D. programs.
