Lynn University is on the hunt for a dozen of South Florida’s best and brightest teachers and school administrators to fill out its inaugural Ed.D. class. To that end, the Donald E. and Helen L. Ross College of Education will host a one-hour information session on the new program on Thursday, Nov. 13, from 6-7 p.m. in the Green Center’s de Hoernle Lecture Hall. The college will also participate in the university’s Fall Open House on Saturday, Nov. 15, from 10 a.m.-1 p.m. in the lobby of the Schmidt Center.

At both sessions, college administrators will outline the entrance requirements, program structure and answer questions about the Ed.D., which is often called the “practitioner’s doctorate” for its focus on professional practice. Dean Patrick Hartwick and program director Valerie Storey will also outline the program’s distinguishing features including its three-year term of study, evenings-and-weekend class format and capstone project requirement (rather than a dissertation). The two will also discuss the program’s impressive pedigree as a member of the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching’s Project on the Education Doctorate (CPED).
