Ed.D. students pioneer collaboration

Lynn’s innovative use of technology is enhancing teaching and learning, including at the doctoral level.

Eleven students in Lynn’s Ed.D. in Educational Leadership program were the first to collaboratively conduct research and write the Carnegie Project on Education Doctorate (CPED) dissertation, which included re-creating Lynn’s doctoral handbook as an e-book for future Ed.D. students.

“Everybody in our cohort is a future education leader who’s stepping up to a different role,” said Ed.D. student Jerome Vickers (shown at left). “Now, they can say, ‘I created this book in my doctoral program. Why don’t I do something like this for my school or my district?’ That’s the educational leadership component.”

The CPED model encourages students to collaborate on projects, programs and practices to make educational settings better places for students, faculty and communities.

“Our practice is to inspire our Lynn students to ‘break away’ from the traditional, five-chapter dissertation and contribute to their respective environments in unique ways, together,” said Kathleen Weigel, dean of the Donald E. and Helen L. Ross College of Education.

Weigel says it is exciting to watch students create valuable, relevant, practical work to be used in the field. “The students’ ideas and results have been magical,” she says.
