Invitation to host a CPED virtual event in Spring & Fall 2024


Invitation to host a CPED virtual event in 2024

We are looking to build a knowledge-filled, interactive calendar for our members this coming year and believe you, your colleagues, and your work with your EdD program would make a nice addition.

As you know, CPED offers virtual Webinars, Challenge Fridays, and Show & Tell Tuesdays. Attached you will find a description of each.

By hosting an event you will contribute to the enrichment of the CPED’s Knowledge Forum on the EdD for re/designing and evaluating the EdD program(s) through dialog, experimentation, critical feedback, and evaluation. In this spirit, we are specifically looking for topic areas highly suggested by the participants of previous years’ virtual events. However, you are most welcome to suggest your own topics as well. 

  • Pros and cons of on-line EdD programs
  • Tenets and realities of social justice and diversity, equity, and inclusion in EdD programs
  • Student/faculty advising relationships
  • Managing faculty loads
  • Being a New or Seasoned Member in CPED
  • Applied Research in Practice—how to design and do in an EdD program
  • Strategies for defining Problems of Practice
  • Building Cohort norms
  • Designing and advising group dissertations
  • Laboratories of Practice—what are they?
  • Engaging the student workplace in the DiP
  • The EdD in an international context
  • Managing several EdDs across different departments
  • Designing School-wide EdD programs
  • Alternative models of the DiP

As you consider hosting a virtual event, we ask you to keep in mind and consider how the new CPED Vision, Mission, and Values might support your presentation. These are:

VISION of a future where equity-minded educational professionals lead lasting and positive change for the learning and benefit of everyone.

MISSION to transform the advanced preparation of educational professionals to lead through scholarly practice for the improvement of individuals and communities.

VALUES of Diversity, Learning, Partnership, People, Social Justice, and Students First more embraced and vitalized!

I hope you will see this invitation as an opportunity to serve CPED, to share your knowledge and skills with the Consortium, and to promote yourself and your hard work. 

If you are interested (and I hope you are!), please complete this FORM that will ask for session type, title, etc.

If you have any questions, reach out to me by email or phone.
