Embedding CPD in Higher Education
- Woburn House, London
- 7 October 2009 10:00-16:00
In this workshop Mike Laycock and Liz Shrives will explore the issues and theories of Continuing Professional Development, the emergence of CPD schemes and frameworks and the reality of implementing CPD in higher education institutions. Drawing on the contributors to their recent SEDA Paper 123 ‘Embedding CPD in Higher Education’ they address major challenges and questions such as: what is CPD in the context of higher education? How can it be recorded and recognised? How can staff (not just academic staff) be encouraged to participate and value it? How can universities and university management work with their staff to use CPD for mutual benefit?
