Course summary

The EdD is for professionals working in schools, universities, educational businesses, agencies, or voluntary bodies who would like to research into any aspect of pedagogy, teaching or learning.

Course overview

Education, pedagogy, teaching, and learning continue to be at the forefront of cultural debates since they help us understand our identities and values as a society. Our EdD is designed to support graduate professionals working across the education sector to conduct original doctoral research in this continually changing field.

Why study this course with us?

You will study under the guidance of our team of active researchers who have international reputations in their field and who will support you throughout the course.

You will undertake taught modules that are delivered over six weekends each year to fit in with the busy schedules of working professionals. Evening seminars, workshops and conferences are held regularly to supplement the course; some weekend sessions are taught in situ, such as the creative education workshops in the galleries at Tate Liverpool.

Assessment

The assessment of taught modules comprises written and practical assignments based on small-scale research projects. The final assessment is based on your doctoral thesis and viva. Creative practices may form part of your thesis.
