For the past two years, seven doctoral candidates have been working on Part I of the Doctor of Education (Leadership). As part of their confirmation through to Part II of the programme, they present public seminars at which they outline and discuss their research proposal. We would be delighted to have you join the EdD team and international examiner, Professor Colin Evers from the University of New South Wales, to hear their proposals and engage in discussion following each seminar.  

All are welcome to these seminars.
