Spaces still left in the 1st annual Educational Developers Caucus 3-day Institute in Vancouver, BC. Apply for a bursary if you have financial hardship. Is this Institute for you? Read on!
You might be an educational developer:
?Do you help colleagues who teach, on either an occasional or regular basis?
?Do you work to support good teaching and learning practice within your own teaching team, department, faculty or an institution-wide centre?
?Do you facilitate seminars, workshops or other events, or produce resources about teaching and learning?
If you answer yes to any of these questions, you are an educational developer!
Other common terms used include faculty developer, instructional developer and academic developer
Please join us at the First annual Educational Developers Caucus 3 day institute
October 28-30, 2013 at the beautiful campus of the University of British Columbia (UBC) in Point Grey, Vancouver, British Columbia
Building upon the success of several years of one-day institutes associated with the EDC conference each year, the EDC, a constituency of the Society for Teaching and Learning in Higher Education (STLHE) has launched this 3 day institute, designed to build foundational skills for novice educational developers (including those considering entering the field), and develop advanced skills among experienced or senior educational developers.
Registration is now open; limited to 25 people per stream, so do not delay! $200 Canadian registration includes 3 breakfasts, 3 lunches and one dinner.
The Institute website http://www.stlhe.ca/conferences-events/edc-institute-2013/ provides more information on each stream, as well as discounted accommodation at UBC campus and travel tips, and contact information for each of the two Institute facilitators, Alice Cassidy and Ruth Rodgers.
We have organized the Institute such that colleagues from out of town would stay over Oct 27 (Sunday), Oct 28 and Oct 29. The Institute ends on Oct. 30 (Wed) at 2:30 pm to allow you to head back home that day.
