Special explores the career development of educational developers at a time
when educational development units and developers themselves are seen as being
increasingly important in informing and supporting the quality enhancement
agenda within higher education. Through a series of personal reflective
accounts, this volume examines the career paths taken by a number of
educational developers at various stages in their careers and includes the
profiles of professionals from the UK,
Ireland, Australia and North America.
By providing a rich and detailed snapshot of the state of educational
development in HE today, this publication sets out to inform the sector,
institutions and individuals alike, and by providing some answers – while posing
even more questions –
the editors hope to open a dialogue concerning the future professional
development and support of educational developers within HE.
