Lessons Learned From Professional Doctorates

London Review of Education special feature

From the Introduction by Ingrid Lunt: 'This special feature is a welcome addition to the literature on professional doctorates and a fitting celebration of 20 years of the IOE EdD. A number of the papers make specific reference to the dynamic development of the EdD at the IOE, reflecting the continuing efforts to create a doctoral degree fit for the various purposes and aspirations of its wide range of participants. In her paper, Taylor discusses some of the tensions inherent in the EdD as an apprenticeship for a particular leadership role, while Burnard et al. present in their paper some of the challenges faced by two senior professionals immersed in their ‘EdD journey’. Particularly welcome is the international participation of writers for this special feature in the London Review of Education, including India (Misra), Ireland (Moran), Israel (Bamberger) and Singapore (Chua).'
