Stuart Boon (Editor), Bob Matthew (Editor), Louisa Sheward (Editor)

Research output: Book/ReportBook

Abstract

This SEDA 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.
