The Role of the Educational Developer in an Ever-evolving Landscape

19 May 2023 - 19 May 2023
Location: Online

The role of the Educational Developer has grown and evolved over the past few years within the dynamic landscape of Higher Education and includes those in central teams but also those in faculties, schools etc and in professional service areas where this work may form one part of their role. The traditional student learning experience has evolved to one where students expect a high quality blended and hybrid learning experience, high quality learning resources and a choice of assessment approaches. New challenges such as the emergence of ChatGPT has implications for both teachers and students. All this has impacted on our role as educational developers and the demand for our support.
