The EdD programme is designed with working professionals in mind, providing a flexible and convenient approach to further study. Undertaking an EdD will enable you to generate new knowledge to advance educational practice and policy in Aotearoa New Zealand and other contexts.
The EdD is a unique, cohort-based doctoral programme where students work with cohort lecturers for the first two years and then with their own research supervisors, who have knowledge and expertise in their area of study and a range of research methods. A Doctor of Education degree has the same status as a PhD.
In 2021, the Doctor of Education programme will have two cohorts, with two specialised themes. The cohort beginning in Semester One (now closed) will be led by Te Puna Wānanga, the School of Māori and Indigenous Education and the cohort beginning in Semester Two will be led by the School of Learning, Development and Professional Practice.
The Semester Two programme is designed for educators and professionals who have an interest in assessment and self-regulated learning, that supports learning and teaching.
