Family Portrait: A Profile of Educational Developers around the World
Green, David A.; Little, Deandra
International Journal for Academic Development, v21 n2 p135-150 2016
Educational development (also called academic or faculty development) has been described as fragmented, disconnected, and a "family of strangers," due mostly to the different academic backgrounds of its members. In this paper, the authors report on a survey of over 1000 educational developers from 38 countries on six continents. To help the field gain a clearer picture of itself at the international level, the authors provide a profile of developers' demography, institutional locations, academic backgrounds, and current roles, and discuss the implications for educational development as a field and developers as a community.
