The IMPACT of the Scholarly Practitioner Doctorate
Developing Socially-Just Leaders to Make Equitable Change

The IMPACT of the Scholarly Practitioner Doctorate: Developing Socially-Just Leaders to Make Equitable Change is a collection of shared counternarratives between EdD alums and their supervising professor mentors, detailing their dissertation in practice (DiP) journeys as scholarly practitioners and the impact of the scholarly practitioner doctorate on their paths from doctoral students to socially-just leaders in a wide range of educational fields. The IMPACT of the Scholarly Practitioner Doctorate posits these relationships as the catalyst in bringing theory learned in course work to scholarly research that is positioned within practice, focused on contributing to equity-centered work. The book serves as an exemplar learning companion to a wide audience and diverse EdD programs looking to modify, develop, or redesign their programs to align with The Carnegie Project on the Education Doctorate (CPED) concepts including signature pedagogy, laboratories of practice, inquiry as practice and mentoring and advising. The IMPACT of the Scholarly Practitioner Doctorate demonstrates how change in education, community, and organizations have been impacted in efficacious ways. EdD students and their supervising professors, faculty, and administrators will be able to use this book’s content as their own catalyst for building socially-just leadership knowledge, skills, and dispositions while preparing their EdD students to exhibit equitable change in the professional practice areas they are in.
