Getting Started and Keeping Going : motivation for continuing professional development

Tuesday, 19 February, 2019 - 14:00 to 17:00
B1.09 Outreach Centre Holyrood

This event is available to: .

Are you working towards Professional Accreditation (eg EdTA, CMALT, CILIP)? Are you  finding it tricky to get started or keep going? Then this is the workshop for you!

Getting Started and Keeping Going will be a chance to meet UoE colleagues informally and use art and creativity to explore what gets in the way and what helps us to get motivated for our own continuing professional development.

In this workshop we will help you to explore your motivations and clarify your priorities. Working in a supportive group setting, the facilitators will guide you through some exploratory activities using images, drawing and other creative approaches.

Some of the things that we hope will happen are:

  • We’ll learn how to manage our own development activities and support each other
  • We’ll be aware of the helps and hindrances in our lives
  • We’ll discuss experiences of working on professional development
  • We’ll share insights and tips
  • People will feel less isolated
  • We will recognise that motivation is different for everyone
  • People will have fun, drink tea and enjoy cake! 

This event is organised and supported by the Institute for Academic Development and Information Services Group
