The purpose of this chapter is to capture an oral history of the Educational Developers in Ireland Network (EDIN), which was established in 2002, and to provide a snapshot of the Network as it is currently in 2012-13. The oral history/dialogue-based approach was chosen in order to chronicle key moments in the establishment and growth of the network leading up to EDIN’s tenth anniversary this academic year. The chapter is a personal reflection on a conversation among key players in the Network, which took place in the Athlone Institute of Technology, prior to the EDIN Annual General Meeting on May 28th 2012.
