With increasingly interconnected global higher education, the shortcomings of dominant Anglo-American models of educational development are exposed when transposed upon emergent higher education communities and global First Nations' contexts. Moreover, as educational development becomes increasingly professionalized, harmful gaps and toxic cultures arise from blind spots created by disciplinary "best-practices". This experiential session examines our profession's limitations and the potentially detrimental constraints of faculty development modes we practice on our own campuses. This session encourages strategies for more critical reflexive practices that will benefit the profession and underserved populations of faculty and students.
