Doctor of Education in Instructional Leadership

Our Focus

The EdD in Instructional Leadership at WestConn has three major components:

  • Leadership Theory and Foundation. In one of our first courses of the program, students participate in a leadership exercise and construct an individualized Leadership Development Plan with a faculty advisor. This plan acts as a blueprint for the acquisition and enrichment of leadership behaviors and skills. Additionally, students develop individual, group, and organizational competencies through planned study in these areas.
  • Area of Specialization in Curriculum and Instruction. Students investigate cognitive-developmental theories and data-based strategies to design and modify classroom curricula as well as to create professional development experiences in schools.
  • Inquiry Strategies and Dissertation Sequence. Doctoral students interpret and apply a full complement of in-depth research strategies to educational settings. Students develop skill and knowledge in the areas of evaluation, interpretation, and research implementation.
