Educational ambassadorship: an approach to institutional change
Session Time and Location
After the collapse of the previous academic development unit (ADU) at a large Swedish university, I was asked in 2015 to build up a new ADU. I inherited a generous budget and six academic developers. My goal was threefold: to build capacity to inspire and generate educational development; to establish communities of practice around teaching and learning at the departmental level; and to develop an institutional culture built on sharing and collaboration and in line with the scholarship of teaching and learning. In this presentation, I share what we did and the findings based on interviews with 24 participants.
