Written by senior professionals at The Open University, this book exalts the Ed. D. as a route to a professional doctorate for busy professionals. Some comments expressed by students are slightly disparaging of PhD, nevertheless and setting such differences of opinion aside, anyone seeking doctoral status would benefit from dipping into or immersing themselves in this well written text.
Clearly formatted pages with bold section headings make for quick and easy access to relevant passages where readers can watch the authors skilfully untangle the mysteries of research language such as ‘theoretical framework’, methodology and data analysis.
I recommend Achieving Your Doctorate in Education to students and new supervisors involved in the doctoral research process.
