Look out for learning and development colleagues who will be in the Lecture Theatre, MDGH on Wednesday 22 MAY for LEARNING AT WORK DAY
Following the theme, “Many Ways to Learn” – a number of L&D representatives will be on hand to discuss and demonstrate the many learning opportunities available to staff and students.
Radcliffe Health and Continuing Professional Development are making a number of their books available FREE online to achieve CPD (Continuing Professional Development) points through directed reading. The only stipulation is that you register with them and complete an online form to document your learning by adding notes. Upon submission of the form they will send you a copy via email and provide a CPD certificate for you to print out and add to your professional record. The form contains 8 questions and is best done whilst the knowledge you have gained is still fresh.
Examples of CPD questions are:
- What is the most important action you need to undertake as a result of your learning activity?
- How will your learning influence (or change) your current way of working/thinking?
- How has this learning enhanced your understanding and way of working?
