This workshop addresses research conundrums many educational developers face: How do I encapsulate my research when I have crossed disciplinary boundaries? How do I explain my scholarship to outsiders? How do I reassure myself that I’m not an academic imposter? How do I choose new projects wisely?
Using a model by Boden, Epstein, and Kenway (2005), participants will engage in a three-step process to organize and capture their research to date, with the potential to incorporate future projects, too. Participants will create a first draft of their own “personal intellectual project” – the big-picture overview of their research. This overview is intended to help developers be understood by disciplinary outsiders, whether in promotion files, job applications, or simply everyday conversations with academic and administrative colleagues for whom educational development remains a hazy field.
