PDP and learning to be professional

Page history last edited by Norman Jackson 12 years ago

To be an agent is to influence intentionally one's functioning and life circumstances. In this view people are self-organizing, proactive, self-regulating and self-reflecting. They are contributors of their life circumstances, not just products of them Albert Bandura 2007 


Being able to work independently and with others to think through and assess a situation in a professional context; plan and implement appropriate actions; monitor the effects of their actions and change them if necessary and learn through reflective processes embedded in and outside the immediate experience, is the basic epistemology of any proactive self-regulating professional. Personal Development Planning (PDP) is intended to support the development of such epistemology. But how is it being used to help learners develop this agency?


Some questions

  • How do learners develop their reflective agency in order to make effective use of PDP and opportinities for learning through experience?
  • How is PDP being used to support learners and their experiential learning across their life-wide experiences?
  • In particular, how is it used to support learners in their development towards being a professional?
  • What tools and facilitation techniques are helping learners utilise PDP processes in work environments?
  • How is experiential learning gained through PDP practices recognised and valued within credit and award structures?
