This paper describes the development of a three-phase approach our team of educational developers finds useful in curriculum projects in our Teaching and Learning Centre. Informed by the literature on the importance of flexibility and iteration (Knight, 2001; Wolf, 2007) and an orientation towards Appreciative Inquiry (Srivastra & Cooperrider, 1990), we contextualize our work in relation to others in the Canadian educational development landscape. Additionally, we highlight the importance of recognizing micro, meso, and macro levels of influence in institutions of higher education (Poole & Simmons, 2013). We describe our Inquire, Imagine, and Innovate, or 3-I, model for curriculum consultation, positioned by fictionalized vignettes demonstrating how each phase is applied. We conclude the paper by indicating where we are continuing to develop this work.
