Congratulations—you’re doing educational development! What are the opportunities, challenges, and risks before you: reaching all constituents, budgeting, prioritizing, advocating, establishing professional identity, evaluating your program, meeting increased demands? This session offers early and mid-career educational developers an opportunity to consult with peers and experienced mentors. Prior to the session, participants select an issue they want to examine closely. The session provides a safe place to collaborate with colleagues, reflecting on their specific issues, and together, identifying strategies. The process helps professionals build a sense of efficacy as leaders and establish relationships with colleagues across the career spectrum.

Audience: New/recent educational developers (5 years or less); Administrators (Assoc. Deans, Deans, Vice Provosts, Assoc. VPs)
