Theme: Setting a Community Responsive Agenda for the Next 100 Years
Operationalizing the CPED Framework to prepare educational professionals who engage inquiry for and with communities and ensure all students learn and thrive in just and equitable systems.
With the passing of the 100th year anniversary of the creation of the education doctorate, we say goodbye to the decades of confusion that has surrounded the degree. As a CPED community, we claim the EdD as the professional practice doctorate in education and together seek to transform the advanced preparation and practice of educational professionals. Looking forward, we strive to establish the next 100 years of the EdD as the degree through which practitioners impact learning via collaboration with communities and the centering of equity and justice in educational outcomes.
As we step into this next phase, we wonder, How do we harness the power of the CPED community in conjunction with the research-focused community of our schools of education to improve the communities where our graduates work and lead?
