Theme — Assuring Quality, Transformation, and Brand in CPED-influenced EdD programs: Envisioning quality standards while meeting the needs of scholarly practitioners
“The convening has been an eye opening experience. Transformational.”
What is a CPED Convening?
The signature activity of the Carnegie Project on the Education Doctorate is a “convening.” The term is meant to convey:
Key Features make a convening unique:
Idea Centered:Proactive ideas are always at the heart of a CPED convening as a starting point for conversations that might have otherwise turned rapidly to the logistical or political.
Mix of Pedagogies:
High Expectations: CPED sets high expectations and asks each convening participant complete “pre-work” (assignments that relate to the convening theme) in advance of attending the convening.
Critical Friends: In CPED, the role of critical friends is to support and empower each other by demonstrating a positive regard for people and providing an informed critique of processes and practices (Swaffield, 2005). To this end a set of Convening Norms of Engagement have been established by our members to foster this unique environment.
Professional Development for Faculty
Convenings offer members the following types of professional development sessions:
Learning Exchanges: Break out session that provide members the opportunities to both lead learning exchanges and have the option to select among sessions that will be more beneficial to their home campus work.
