EDUCATIONAL DEVELOPMENT (also known as academic or faculty development) is work focused on supporting university teachers to improve the quality of academic practice in higher education. This work might include improving learning and teaching, research practice, e-learning, academic leadership skills, organizational change, or other related areas.


We aim to identify ways in which the field of educational development and work as educational developers has changed since our previous survey in 2014, and to see what emerging or recurring issues ICED may wish to focus on in the coming years.

 Ethics approval:

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