#CPED19 October Convening
Hosted At: The University of South Carolina
October 21-23, 2019
THEME: Interaction & Activism in the Education Doctorate: Creating Lasting Impact
This convening’s theme reminds us that the postmodern leader is an activist who knows how to interact with and uplift the individuals they serve in a sustainable way. The CPED Framework© guides program development for the preparation of this type of leader. Graduates from CPED-influenced programs become Scholarly Practitioners who advocate for equity and social justice and use practical collaborative research (e.g., participatory action research, design-based improvement, improvement science) and applied theories as tools for change against inequities. Interaction and activism are cultivated in EdD programs. Through program policies that promote and encourage reform, the EdD can be the prime learning space to support practices of using inquiry and engagement in education as a means of activist leadership.

Call for CIG-Sponsored Exchanges
CPED Improvement Groups (CIGs) consist of groups of members who share a common interest in specific topics, contexts, or components of EdD program design and who want to learn about and develop strategies for improving best practices. During the 2019 October Convening each CIG will sponsor sessions related to their focus.
View the call for exchanges for CIG sponsored exchanges here.
Proposals are double blind, peer-reviewed by CPED member faculty and CPED staff. Selections are made in order to provide an engaging, interactive learning experience for our diverse community. Space is limited so we may not be able to accept all proposals.
Exchanges will be due: September 9, 2019
All exchange presenters are expected to register for the convening. Exchanges take place on every day of the convenings. We cannot give preference for a day, however. By submitting an exchange proposal, you agree to be available for all days.
Interested in serving as an Exchange Reviewer?
As a membership organization, we look to our member faculty to ensure continued quality programming. A great way to support your understanding of CPED and EdD (re)design is to review convening exchanges proposals. We are particularly interested in ensuring that the exchanges have an active learning/experiential/engagement component in them, and hope that reviewers can assist us with this process.
