The Sheffield EdD
The Sheffield EdD has been running for over twenty years in its current format and has grown in strength and popularity. We have exciting ideas for developing the programme for the future, to build upon its current strengths and successes, and introduce innovative concepts which will enable us to continue to grow and meet the changing needs of our students.
Whilst we plan these exciting developments, the current version of the programme will no longer be recruiting. However, the new programme will be offered from September 2020.
The new EdD programme will be led by Dr Rebecca Parry, supported by Dr Emma Pearson and Dr David Hyatt. Dr Parry specialises in children's cultural worlds, play and literacies in education and has extensive experience of supporting distance learning students. Dr Pearson specialises in early childhood and has recent experience in leading implementation of a re-validated EdD programme. Dr David Hyatt has been involved with the Sheffield EdD programme for many years and in recent years as Deputy Director, his research interests have a focus on pedagogy, particularly in a higher education context. The team are delighted to be working with colleagues and prospective students and to leading this important programme.
