As educational developers, telling stories is central to our role as change agents. We tell our stories through personal contact, websites, social media, annual reports, assessment, consultations, teaching, research and many other artifacts. We use story and personal narrative to discuss events, keep traditions alive, relate information, share inspiration, persuade and many more reasons. Story is one of the most powerful ways to teach and engage. This poster session will challenge educational developers to consider and analyze how their core stories can be used to help give voice to our work, define our identity and position ourselves within our institutions.
