Educational development is broadly defined as the profession dedicated to enhancing teaching and learning in post-secondary environments. As such our work is diverse and complex and requires us to draw on many skills and abilities.

In this session, participants will engage in discussions and small group activities to better understand what educational developers do, how we do our work, and the values that underpin our work.

Participants will explore the foundational practices and competencies needed and, in doing so, will develop a network of colleagues.

Whether your official title is ‘educational developer’ or not, all are welcome to this session!
