Understanding how Schools of Education have Changed as a result of CPED

Project funded by US Dept of Education Fund for the Improvement of Post-Secondary Education (P116B100134)
  2010-2014

In 2010, the CPED Consortium received a $700,000 U.S. Department of Education Fund for the Improvement of Post-secondary Education (FIPSE) grant to study how twenty-one of its original member schools of education changed their Ed.D. programs as a result of being part of the CPED. Specifically, the FIPSE-funded research project sought to use a multi-case analysis to answer the following research questions:

  1. What has been CPED’s impact on doctoral preparation, has it been perceived as an innovation?
  2. What do the Professional Practice Doctorates look like and how do they differ from what was offered before?
  3. How did the college/school make and diffuse these changes?
  4. What are the lessons learned?
