TELedvisors webinar – A third space moment: what is integrated practice? and how can it enable positive change and support a career journey? (7pm AEDT 9am BST)

31 March 2022 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm AEDT

Emily McIntosh and Diane Nutt 

with the support of Sally Kift 

What is integrated academic practice, and how does it apply to me in the work I do?  The webinar will focus on exploring what integrated practice means, and how it applies to understanding our identity and activities in the ‘third space’.  We will consider the ever-changing nature of this important work, especially in the context of the events of the last two years, and discuss how we might lead into the future to effectively situate post-pandemic TELedvisor practice within university strategies, structures and systems.  We will consider: how TELedvisors can continue to effect positive change from where we are and what our career journeys might look like into the future.

The session will cover:

  • An introduction on what integrated practice is, third space as a concept and third space working – and its impact on our practice
  • Applying this thinking to enable change in institutions
  • Exploring career journeys in integrated practice for edvisors in (and out of) the third space

The session will be followed by a half hour informal launch of Emily’s and Diane’s new book, published March 31st – Mcintosh, E and Nutt, D. (Eds.) The Impact of the Integrated Practitioner in Higher Education: studies in third space professionalism (Routledge, 2022) We hope some of you will be able to stay and raise a glass with us.
