Pre-Convening Workshops

CPED is offering 3 workshops at the 2018 June CPED Convening. Both will be on June 13, 2018 from 8am-12pm prior to the convening. The cost for each is $50. To participate in these workshops, please select the session when registering for the Convening.

Exploring and Expanding the Concept of Rigor in CPED-Inspired EdD Programs

Facilitators: Kofi Lomotey & Jess Weiler, Western Carolina University       

This workshop is built on research and institutional knowledge uncovered about rigor in our CPED-influenced program and programs across our nation. This workshop is timely because of the continuous pressure EdD programs are under to illustrate/document that they are as rigorous as PhD programs. In this workshop participants will have opportunities to:

  • discuss how rigor is defined and operationalized within their programs;

  • increase their understanding of the challenges faced by EdD programs nationally with regard to rigor;

  • contribute to and extend the existing understanding of rigor as it applies to the CPED-inspired, education doctorate;

  • understand how to re-engineer programs with rigor and integrate CPED’s principles into this process;

  • gain ideas for framing, communicating and ultimately defending the rigorous nature of programs to stakeholders;

  • learn from others who have lessons to share from engaging in similar work or who, through program improvement and/or CPED alignment, have developed programs with clearly articulated and illustrated indicators of rigor;

  • participate in a discussion regarding appropriate next steps.

This workshop will be collaborative in the truest sense of the word.


Contextualizing Improvement Science in Dissertations in Practice

Facilitators: Robert Crow, Western Carolina University and Debby Zambo, CPED

This workshop is designed for CPED members who want to know more about, or deepen their understanding of, improvement science and Dissertations in Practice. In this workshop participants will learn about:

·The overarching tenants of Improvement Science and how they relate to the DiP and support CPED’s principles

·Ways to incorporate the tools of Improvement Science into the DiP process

·Quality standards for writing an Improvement Science DiP

The workshop will be hands-on and action oriented. Participants will leave with ideas, strategies, and tools they can take back to their institutions to use with their students, faculty, and administrators. 


Building/Redesigning an Online Program with the CPED Framework: A Bootcamp

Facilitators: Sara Ewell, Northeastern University and Elan Paulson, Western University

Although there are unique challenges embedded in designing high-impact professional doctoral programs for online delivery, virtual learning environments also offer new opportunities for preparing educational leaders as ͞well-equipped scholarly practitioners who provide stewardship of the profession and meet the educational challenges of the 21st century. This workshop is designed primarily for faculty and staff involved in various aspects of the (re)design and delivery of a CPED-influenced EdD program, but who may be relatively new to online learning. In this boot camp—using a combination of presentation, discussion, and hands-on activities—we will address a selection of major issues arising from leading, designing, teaching, and evaluating online EdD programs. This workshop will be focused on fully online program (re)design, but may be of interest and relevance to those involved in blended programs as well. Those who already offer online EdD programs will also benefit from exchanging online program improvement strategies in this session.
