CON02.01 - Balancing Resources across Strategies, Projects and Programs in Educational Development

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

A typical mix of activities within educational development includes ongoing base programs common across institutions (e.g., for new teachers), limited-term projects on current academic priorities and longer-term strategic initiatives for distinctive institutional excellence. We all need to balance the assignment of our limited resources across this range of activities.

In this session we will learn from each other about dealing with these challenges, identify further issues of interest and explore ways to foster collaboration on finding the right mix in our local contexts. To kick off discussion, leaders from three Canadian institutions will share insights from their experiences and identify one issue or challenge where they are seeking collective wisdom.

Participants will also suggest additional issues or challenges of importance, followed by small group discussion to share ideas, insights and experiences on specific common interests. The session concludes with exploration of follow-up activities to continue our collective learning.
