To introduce students to the ethos and ways of working on this online EdD, set the pattern for doctoral-level practice and start creating an international academic community.
As a student, you will gain insight into the potential for learning by working with a diverse cohort of international students in an online classroom. You will articulate your own motivations for entering the programme and engage in collaborative discussion on the origins of, and variations in, Higher Education in your home country and the home countries of other students. You will consider how your own and others’ approach to leadership is influenced by contextual and cultural factors, and how research might play a part in promoting the development of your professional practice. This module begins the process of forming a cohesive, international, cooperative, academic community.
