Concurrent Learning Exchange Sessions

Exchange A: Beyond a Definition: Designing and Specifying Dissertation in Practice (DiP) Models
Presenters: Valerie Storey, University of Central Florida; Bryan Maughan, University of Idaho
Presentation Focus: Higher Education/Organizational Leadership [Dissertation in Practice] Type of Presentation: Symposia 

Abstract: Over the past decade there have been substantial discussions around the evolution of the Dissertation in Practice (DiP). This, we assume, is because the doctorate is the highest level of academic achievement and the dissertation represents the premiere manifestation by which the quality of an EdD program may be measured. While reviewing the DiPs among phase I CPED affiliate institutions, we found gentle, drastic, and no changes in the dissertation. In this session we will expand this conversation and engage participants in a discussion about distinctive features of a DiP for CPED affiliates. We will expand on the use of CPED design concepts (e.g., problem of practice, laboratories of practice, signature pedagogy, and inquiry as practice) and how they have impacted the nature of the DiP.
Type of Presentation: Roundtable

Knowing these results the question is – where do we go from here? What research questions, designs, and funding sources should we be pursuing?
