Professional learning of academics for the teaching function is inherently a change imperative, positioned within the ambit of institutional teaching and learning centres. Professional learning with a focus on the professionalization of lecturers and the teaching role would subsequently lead to quality student learning. Creating an enabling environment where the wellbeing of academics is apparent, would raise their level of intrinsic motivation and could be a wise step in the pursuit of reaching institutional goals. The role of academic developers in creating such environments is the focus of this presentation. Delegates will be involved in a change management, brainstorm process.
