EdD CTE Cohorts – Weekend #2

The second weekend on campus for the two EdD Cohorts has now come and gone. There was great excitement and energy in the air! Several opportunities were available for the two cohorts to network and share areas of interest.  For example, based on the concept of speed-dating, “Rapid Researching” was conducted.  This involved the Inaugural Cohort and the Pioneer cohort meeting for three eight-minute rounds, exploring topics, sharing ideas, and identifying resources. It was a valuable experience for the Inaugural Cohort to refine the articulation of their research ideas as well as providing some ideas for the Pioneer Cohort to pursue.

Here is a look at the Pioneer Cohort getting ready for a small group presentation under the direction of Dr. Carol Mooney.

Major takeaways from the Pioneer’s first weekend.

The Inaugural Cohort in Comparative Systems with Dr. Urs Haltinner leading the way.

The next time both cohorts will be together on campus will be February 6 and 7, 2015. Until then, everyone is working hard to complete the assignments as the end of this semester is fast approaching!


EdD in CTE Cohorts

The fall term at UW-Stout is well underway.   We are thrilled to have held our first on-campus meeting of the 2014 Ed.D. CTE Cohort – now and forever aptly known as the Pioneer Cohort of the EdD in Career and Technical Education at UW-Stout.  This group was on-campus for the Introduction to the EdD in CTE class.  During their time on campus, they established the core values that will guide them throughout their doctoral journey.  A photo depiction of the group and their core values appears below.

In addition to the on-campus presence of the Pioneer Cohort, the Inaugural Cohort was also visible, engaging in their study of Comparative Systems with Dr. Urs Haltinner.   The Inaugural cohort had an updated photo shoot; you can see this scholarly group below, with their core value statements included.

Both groups will return to campus on November 7-8, 2014.

(Applications for the fall 2015 cohort are being accepted; review of materials will begin on March 1, 2014.  Go to for specific information about the application process or contact Dr. Carol Mooney at 715-232-1444 or
