Accountability concerns in higher education provide a timely imperative for educational developers to articulate our centrality to institutional change (Stefani, 2010; Schroeder,  2012). Aligning our contributions with institutional strategic plans in a series of interactions of varying modalities (face-to-face, online) provides the necessary leverage to empower instructional and administrative colleagues and demonstrate positive outcomes. In this pre-conference workshop participants will analyze a case study and apply the backward design process to sketch a workshop series designed to support institutional change, including plans for collecting, analyzing, and disseminating data related to their work (Fink, 2005; Beach, 2016).
