5 Course content The degree has three elements: 1. Taught Research Training Component This compulsory element is designed to provide you with a systematic and wideranging understanding of the traditions and methods relating to education related research. The training will support the selection of an appropriate research methodology and develop skills in the presentation of research findings. As well as writing a Critical Reflective Commentary, you will study three areas: Philosophical Issues in Research Methods of Data Collection and Data Analysis Research Design 2. Institution-focused study (IFS) The IFS is a report of approximately 10,000 words which provides you with an opportunity to reflect on and extend your understanding of their professional role and research expertise. You will also have the opportunity to apply your expertise in a practical way through an extended piece of research using the knowledge, understanding and skills acquired in the Research Training Component. The IFS is conducted in a specific education related institution to which you will have access and is focused on the professional activities related to your research in that institution. 3. Research Based Thesis Your thesis (minimum 40,000 words) will demonstrate originality and independent critical ability within your chosen field of research. Conforming to University guidelines, it will also make a distinct and original contribution to knowledge within professional education and demonstrate its relevance to the professional context. Recent completions relate to research in these specified areas: The disposition of university students towards communal e-learning styles Giving and receiving compliments: a Lebanese cultural phenomenon Joining the Dots and seeing the whole picture initial teacher education for mental mathematics The implementation and impact of the Secondary National Science Strategy: a single school case study to explore classroom teaching styles and the responses of students to these initiatives Young people s and employers perceptions of equal opportunities in the world of work Slowly walking backwards: an interpretative phenomenological analysis of students perceptions Learning English as a foreign language in a non-native country and speaking in the UK: lived experience of Nepalese students Working through change: an FE insider s analysis of lived experience in a time of constant change Assessment The research training is examined by an independent member of academic staff on completion through a Portfolio of approximately 18,000 words. The Portfolio must be passed as a whole before progressing to IFS/Thesis stage. The IFS will be assessed by an independent annual progression panel to which you will need to demonstrate how this study and your other work have contributed to your professional development and an extended understanding of your professional role. The IFS and Thesis are combined for summative final assessment through a viva voce examination. August

6 Chris Lloyd-Staples was awarded his Doctor of Education degree in November 2010: I m the County Adviser for Science in Buckinghamshire, a role that I took on in year 2000 following 20 years teaching in schools. My job is very demanding, but there were some days when I could create a little space for my own professional interests. I decided that I d like to gain a higher qualification, and that a part-time doctorate could fit around my workload. My motivation for doing this was entirely a matter of pride several of my University mates had taken PhDs and I knew that I could too! The advantage of the EdD for me was the flexibility to work on it in the relatively slack periods in my work, and put it aside when work is hectic. It was very exciting when I got into the research and frustrating when I had to put it on hold for several months at a stretch. The initial phase of the EdD is partly taught, and the first lectures were a real eye-opener for me. My scientific background did not prepare me for discussions on the uncertainty of truth! My supervisors were always very prepared to support and assist, and their expertise was really important when making sense of the literature. The most significant help to me was their comments on what I had written, guiding my style and thinking processes. The benefits to me were two-fold. First, I ve became much more aware of literature related to my work, and some of the influences that affect what goes on in schools. This has made me better able to contribute to professional dialogue, and even resulted in a BBC radio programme about my work. The second benefit was to open up a whole new way of thinking about the world and the philosophical standpoints that I had previously ignored. From a personal perspective, this enabled me to better understand other people s views though not necessarily agree with them. Overall, the EdD process was an extremely positive experience, full of intellectual excitement and new approaches. My advice to other students would be to always recognise changes in standpoint and greater flexibility of thought. My personal frustrations were linked to my inability to set time aside and you need to promise yourself this will improve! 6
