Educational leadership in the teaching and learning mandate of institutions is expressed in different arenas, which include personal practice, Departmental and Faculty priorities, and institutional strategy (Aitken & Tateba, 2014). Though educational leadership incorporates notions of enhancement, innovation and influence, it is often conflated with activities relating to educational management and / or service in the area of teaching and learning (Hofmeyer, Sheingold, Klopper, & Warland, 2015).

In Canada, many institutions have teaching-focused roles and appointments which incorporate or require elements of educational leadership activity for promotion and career advancement (Bowness, 2016); yet there is often lack of clarity in what the term actually encompasses (Berkowicz & Myers, 2016). This session draws on recent work at UBC to re-conceptualize how we think about, identify, document, and establish the impact of educational leadership activities.
This session will engage participants in large and small group discussion, individual reflection, and a guided activity to map their educational leadership contributions.

By the end of this session, participants will be able to:
• Articulate a definition of educational leadership
• Begin to identify their own educational leadership activities and associated evidence via a mapping activity
• Describe sources of evidence of educational leadership
• Decide on next steps for documenting their educational leadership
