As educational developers, we work in and among the traditions of higher education and our field, just as we produce and replicate our own traditions. One tradition of educational development in Canada is the annual Educational Developers Caucus conference. The 2017 conference, hosted by the University of Guelph, asks us to examine, evaluate, challenge and defend the traditions of educational development. We invite you to take this opportunity to explore the traditions of your work, and to present the evidence for the continuation of an established practice or to rethink those traditions that continue without justification or merit.
We welcome your questions regarding the 2017 EDC conference. Please email the organizing committee with any questions.
