...and like I said, I'm not listening! Very interesting! From my experience as a learner, I would rather have experts in the field teaching me the subject than experts in the theories of education stumbling through the material. For example, I felt the VUL DHA had great teachers that had little experience in healthcare administration. My feeling is the OSU online Ed.D. attracts well seasoned experts in the aerospace industry not K through 12 educators. So once again, it comes down to an accurate labeling of the degree. My guess is this particular school was able to convince the college of education it falls under an Ed.D. It what it is and I am not going to lose any sleep over it.
