Careers in Educational Development

Curious about the field of educational development as a career trajectory? Come hear from the CTL’s Assistant Directors (ADs) and Learning Designers (LDs) about our recent paths to careers in educational development and early experiences in this field.

Through a brief pre-session activity and informed in-session Q&A, participants in this session will learn about a range of interests and pathways that led us to this career path, the kinds of opportunities we sought out along the way, and how we prepared for our transition into the field of educational development. Ultimately, this session can help graduate students interested in pursuing a career in educational development to identify steps they can take (or may have already taken) to prepare for this career.

Date & Time: Wednesday, May 4, 2022; 2:00 PM – 3:30 PM
