Continuing Professional Development and Workplace Learning

By Sheila Corrall

Abstract

Reviews trends in the continuing professional development (CPD) of library and information staff in relation to contemporary university library practice in the digital world, highlighting the impact of technology on content and delivery. Discusses current drivers of CPD, multiple routes to professional development, technological impacts on work and learning, mentoring and reflection as professional meta-competencies, leadership institutes and organisational development programmes, and practitioner doctorates as advanced professional development. Concludes that CPD is particularly important because of continuing rapid technology-driven change and that education, research and development activities should be seen as a continuum informing, enhancing and advancing university library practice
