By ‘educational developers,’ we mean people who are engaged in supporting academics (lecturers, faculty, etc.) to improve academic practice broadly (e.g., learning and teaching, research practice, e-learning, academic leadership). Also called ‘academic developers’ and ‘faculty developers’ in some parts of the world.


We aim to identify linkages between developers’ prior academic disciplines and their work in educational development with a view to enhancing developers’ success as agents of change in cross-disciplinary spaces.

Ethics approval:

This study has been approved by Seattle University’s Institutional Review Board. Full information is provided in the online consent form.
