Even if a PhD does not require a traditional dissertation, they normally require a project and a substantive paper which can be almost as long or longer than a dissertation.

Regent University's Doctorate of Strategic Leadership requires a Doctoral Project, which includes an integration paper as part of the project:

When searching for doctorates that require a project, look for professional doctorates, sometimes these type of degrees require a doctorate project and not a traditional dissertation.

Very few accredited schools (EX www.hmu.edu ) still require a small dissertation (8 credits), but allow considerable freedom in the choice of a format

The point of a "doctorate" is being someone who has contributed the world's body of knowledge. just taking some classes doesn't fit the ideal behind ph.D. degrees.

Sunrise, that's pedagogical training. The Latin word "Paedagogus" meant a tutor - in many instances an educated slave, who taught his owner's children, or could be "subcontracted out" by his owner to teach the children of others. The word appears to have been "borrowed" from the original Greek "paidagogos" meaning just about the same thing. The duties of the "paedagogus" appear often to have embraced other areas besides academic education -accompanying their pupils when they went out, teaching them good manners, etc.

The literal translation of the Greek word "Paidagogos" is "boy-leader." The Romans apparently borrowed the Greek term when it became the custom for Roman children to learn Greek as part of their education. (They had plenty of Greek and Greek-literate slaves to assume these duties.)

Pedagogical - pertaining to educating or teaching. Pedagogical training - basically instruction in how to educate or teach.
