Professional Development (PD) provides learning opportunities for academic and professional staff. PD includes student engagement, pedagogical underpinning of learning and teaching, teaching strategies, scholarship and research based on Boyer Principles of Scholarship (Scholarship Reconsidered) (PDF, 610kb) and approaches to enhance the student learning experience based on BOLD learning and teaching technologies.
Professional development is delivered using a variety of modes including face-to-face mode, blended mode and online mode. Professional development can often be presented as a combination of a one or more need.
Professional development can also be tailored to the needs of specific programs, courses and individuals.
