Leadership and Innovation Ed.D.
If you are interested in furthering your education, the Doctor of Education in Leadership and Innovation at Arizona State University may be a terrific option for you. This degree equips educator-leaders to be scholarly practitioners who transform their practice and create better learning opportunities for learners of all ages.
Our students come from diverse professional settings, including early childhood, K-12, higher education and other organizations where learning takes place. They include community college and university instructors and staff such as student service professionals, instructional technologists and program directors. Coursework is designed to deepen their ability to lead change and implement innovation in their local educational organizations.
As a member of the Carnegie Project on the Education Doctorate, the program’s signature pedagogies include action research, a form of reflective inquiry into one’s professional practice, and Leader School Communities (LSC), a community of practice that consists of five to seven students and one faculty leader. Successful graduates commit to continued systematic study of their professional practice and to sustaining innovation and leadership by making a positive difference in their local settings. The program aims to enable more thoughtful, intentional and informed leaders, willing and able to implement and study continuous improvement.
