Academic Developer Identity: How We Know Who We Are
Kinash, Shelley; Wood, Kayleen
International Journal for Academic Development, v18 n2 p178-189 2013
This paper explores academic developer identity by applying self-concept theory and appreciative inquiry to the personal journeys of two academic developers. Self-attribution, social comparison and reflected appraisals are presented and applied to explain how academic developers form their identities. Sociological principles are incorporated to describe the recursive informing of academic development and developer identities. The presentation of implications positions academic developers as higher education leaders.
