EDL 9100 Dissertation in Practice I

The dissertation in practice is developed in the first two years, beginning in the first two classes, and is implemented, evaluated and presented in the third year. It is the capstone of the program, and it demonstrates the student’s ability as a scholar-practitioner to identify and research a problem of practice, to determine a resolution that will be designed and implemented, then evaluated and publicly presented to the classroom, school or district community. The classroom, school or district is the student’s client throughout this process. The capstone presentation is the product developed for the client.
