Pathways to the Profession of Educational Development: An International Perspective
McDonald, Jeanette; Stockley, Denise
International Journal for Academic Development, v13 n3 p213-218 Sep 2008
Educational development over the last 35 years has progressed from an informal set of instructional improvement activities to a scholarly field of study and practice. At the same time, its scope has evolved to include a broad range of services, resources, programs and initiatives (e.g., curriculum development, action research, mentoring) designed to advance and support educational effectiveness in higher education at all levels: individual, departmental and organizational. In this article, the authors discuss things that need to be understood better in order for educational development to continue to grow as a profession, and to forge and international "pathways" research agenda.
