ED 700 Overview
Students are oriented to the doctoral program and to the four major strands of study: leadership, learning, service, and research, and explore their current beliefs and understandings about each strand. Through reading, reflection, and dialogue, students begin to create an Individual Plan of Scholarship for their doctoral studies, with an emphasis on leadership development. The plan emanates from their analysis of the discrepancy between what they know and what they want to learn in the areas of leadership, learning, service, and research based on program outcomes and performance indicators for their doctoral study. Further, the orientation seminar engages students in several opportunities to learn about: study team formation, small group presentations, leadership styles, practica requirements, mentoring, use of technology, University library resources, and other program policies and procedures.
