For early-career educational developers, it can be challenging to navigate a profession that is designed to respond to the changing landscape of higher education. Additionally, preparation for this role is not created equal - some folks enter the field with prior consulting experience, faculty member experience, and/or training from other kinds of alternative academic positions. At this session, participants will learn how to establish horizontal mentorships, defined as a non-hierarchical approach to mentoring, to extend their professional networks of productive and equitable relationships, as well as model an approach to foster success for underrepresented scholars throughout their academic careers.
