Joining the Academic Development Profession

May 15,19

Clint Patterson, a Center for Teaching Excellence postdoctoral research associate, recently published a reflection of practice as part of an Emerging Voices special issue in the International Journal for Academic Development (IJAD).
This reflection on practice describes the first fifty days of a professional transition from student affairs into academic development. Campus collaborations, educational experiences, and holistic student learning are identified as professional parallels between these two institutional divisions. Professionals from student affairs can uniquely contribute to academic development because of their ability to view the campus as a working system and the student as a whole person. This reflection describes how a student affairs background can be a valuable addition and asset to academic development teams.
