Doctorate in Education (EdD)

I took my MEd course at Stirling and enjoyed the open, discursive and collaborative teaching approach taken by the tutors. Highlights for me have been to meet and work with colleagues from a wide variety of educational backgrounds. The course has helped me to refine my research interests and narrow them down to one specific manageable area and to give me the tools and confidence to carry out the necessary research. I have been seconded within my authority recently to promote a tracking and monitoring initiative in line with CfE and feel that I was chosen for this job in part because of my involvement in the EdD course.
