Five years have passed since Gibbs' seminal work on the changing nature of educational development. Although many of the categorisations may still be valid, we acknowledge that academic development practice is in constant negotiation with the environment in which it takes place. The purpose of this workshop is to map understandings of academic development in different contexts. Together we will map our understandings of academic development into a heuristic. creating focal points for research and development of academic development practice.
