Research Improves Practice

In the Lewis & Clark Ed.D. program, the goal of the dissertation is to expand the conceptual knowledge base for the discipline. To accomplish this we employ a variety of models of inquiry which solve problems and build solutions in the schools and work sites of cohort members.

In this way, the courses become relevant to your work experience, and the work products of degree candidates serve to directly and immediately improve conditions, programs, and/or structures in the organizations where you work. We expect that the research conducted by degree candidates will promote positive organizational change and consequently benefit the nation’s students, teachers, and communities through positive changes in K-12 education.
