Seminars are equivalent to courses in the Ed.D. program. They commence during each term’s residencies and continue online throughout the term. The residency seminars are taught by faculty and explore significant topics and issues from an educational perspective. Faculty will address relevant topics, learning goals, planned activities, and academic requirements for each seminar at the time they begin. Seminar content is presented in a way that leaves room for divergent points of view with faculty positioning the topic in its conceptual, historical, and methodological contexts.
The Ed.D. with specializations in Educational Leadership or Higher Education is composed of seminars in the following areas:
- Foundational knowledge
- Core knowledge
- Advanced knowledge
- Research Methodology
The syllabus for each seminar will specify the learning documentation to be completed for evaluation. Students must complete each seminar in the order listed in the program requirements.
