Workplace well-being for educational developers

Published by on the 23 May 2018

Dear Colleagues

We are soliciting information on factors that promote workplace well-being among educational developers (we recognise that there are many variations to this term). Your valuable feedback will help us propose different models/frameworks that would help prevent burnout and create a work environment where we can all thrive and flourish. We invite those who engage in educational development work to complete a survey, which we expect will take approximately 15 minutes of your time. We would be very grateful if you would consider helping us with our important research. Any feedback you provide will be anonymous. Our hope is that the results of this project will benefit you directly in adapting strategies that encourage a flourishing work environment and support the wellbeing of educational developers. The project is supported by an Educational Developers Caucus Grant of the Society for Teaching and Learning in Higher Education.

This study has been granted clearance according to the recommended principles of Canadian ethics guidelines, and Queen’s policies: GCTL-041-18. Many thanks in advance for your participation. We value your input!

Sincerely,

Klodiana Kolomitro, Natasha Kenny, Suzanne Le-May Sheffield, and Emily Cehic
