CARNEGIE PROJECT ON THE EDUCATION DOCTORATE ANNOUNCES THE ADMITTANCE OF 7 NEW MEMBER INSTITUTIONS TO THE CONSORTIUM
Pittsburgh, PA, April 24, 2018 – Carnegie Project on the Education Doctorate (CPED) and its Board of Directors have accepted 7 new institution members to the Consortium.
Austin Peay State University
Central Connecticut State University
Plymouth State University
The Chicago School of Professional Psychology
University of West Florida
These institutions join more than 100 current institution members in the important work of redesigning professional practice preparation in education for the improvement of Pk-20 education and the organizations that support it. Institution members of CPED learn together, both from and with all members. New members were chosen through an application process and evaluated by a membership committee composed of leaders of current CPED institution members. Based on the application and support materials of each of these new institution members, CPED anticipates that adding these institutions to the Consortium will add a value that will push CPED’s collective work even farther.
CPED hosts two bi-annual convenings that take place at our member institutions in June and October of each year. New institution members will be invited to attend the upcoming CPED Convening, to be held at Florida State University, Tallahassee, Florida June 13-15, 2018. This convening will focus on impact and its theme, Evidence of Impact: Measuring Change and Changing our Measures, offers new institution members an opportunity to explore various definitions and theories of impact, the types of and criteria for evidence gathered to evaluate impact, and impact evaluation models and tools currently being used to measure change in our EdD students, our programs, and broader communities. Additionally, new members will meet current CPED members with experience related to both technical and adaptive organizational issues that arise in the process of redesigning the EdD.
