“The convening has been an eye opening experience. Transformational.”
2018 October Convening
Call for October 2018 Learning Exchanges
THEME: Mentoring and Advising our Students and Ourselves
The theme of October’s convening reminds CPED members that mentoring and advising in EdD programs needs to be vastly different in many ways from what occurs in traditional doctoral programs—focusing first and foremost on the needs of our students as scholarly practitioners. During this convening, we will discuss the demands, challenges, and rewards this type of mentoring and advising brings to faculty and to EdD program (re)designs.

Convenings & Events are for members only.
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.
