Limited Capacity seats available

Open Session Limited to 40 Participants (First-Come, First-In)

Using the lens of organizational socialization theories (Kramer, 2010), Judy Chan (UBC) and Sarah Louise Turner (SFU) will introduce the diverse organizational structures and goals of educational developers embedded in a Faculty. Over the past five years, both UBC and SFU teaching and learning support units have been exploring an embedded model. Though all liaisons serve similar goals in fostering and supporting quality teaching and learning, flexibility surfaces as the most salient commonality.  

Through discussion and observation of a role-play, participants of this session will gain an overview of this complex system. Colleagues interested in this model will hear about several strategies to help them clarify expected roles. Colleagues who are considering this model will gain some insight on how to engage this conversation with their Faculty.  

The session will end with a reflection on the importance of relationships during institutional shifts.
