INED 2021: Collaboration for Change

NEW DATE June 28-July 1, 2021 | Claremont, CA

Co-hosted by the Claremont Colleges and the University of LaVerne

Educational development can sometimes be a lonely experience.  Developers (and especially new developers) may struggle in isolation with what best practices are, how to engage more people, how to find supportive relationships, and how to leverage the assets of their own and others’ experiences to produce equitable, sustainable educational development and institutional change. The 2020 Institute for New Educational Developers is an opportunity to find partners in the work, build collaborative relationships, and engage with new and experienced developers, administrators, and researchers who are committed to supporting equitable and lasting change across and among campuses, centers, and programs. Join us in sunny Southern California as we collaborate for change!

For more information, please contact the 2020 INED Team Chairs Jessica Tinklenberg (jessicat@claremont.edu) or Jeremy Schnieder (jschnieder@laverne.edu).

2019 INED

The 2019 INED took place July 29–August 2, 2019 at the UNCG campus with hotel accommodations at the Marriott Greensboro Downtown.

The time is now to look at our inclusive future. The 2019 INFD encompasses the history of the field of educational development in higher education with a focus on our inclusive future. Participants will attend sessions on Emerging Inclusive Practice, Emerging Technology, Emerging Best Practices, and “How To” for practical application. Each session is geared at building skills in educational development from consulting to event planning and beyond.

Participants will develop a program action plan with the support of seasoned educational developers, have the opportunity to network with colleagues, create mentoring relationships with dedicated practitioners, and reflect on their own critical practice.

The event ends with a reception at the International Civil Rights Museum, home of the first Woolworth Sit-ins.
