CON6.13 – Transforming Educational Development through Collaboration (Room A237)

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

This panel is inspired by the discussions between faculty, educational developers, university administration, and faculty association representatives that took place at the Faculty Engagement in Educational Development Summit at McMaster University in October 2013. The starting points for the panel are that collaborative efforts among faculty members and educational developers are necessary if we are to develop programs that (1) can capture the interest of and engage faculty at various stages in their careers and (2) move beyond the latest pedagogical and technological trends to offer faculty some stability over time. The main aim is to identify key considerations for creating a framework for faculty professional development that simultaneously provides some structure to improve teaching competence, while allowing sufficient flexibility for faculty to grow into pedagogical practices that feel authentic and fit with their personal styles. Panelists will be asked to answer the following question, which will then be put to discussion with the audience: What are the key elements of an educational development framework that might be simultaneously transformative and flexible? The panelists include a new faculty member, two mid-career faculty members, and an educational developer who will reflect on these questions and use them as an opportunity to begin a dialogue with the audience. We hope to use some of the ideas that emerge in the discussion with the audience as a way to guide the development of a larger research project based in collaboration between faculty and educational developers. Doing so will allow us to identify intersections and divergences in the needs and challenges expressed by faculty members and those highlighted by educational developers.
