    • What is a PDP?
      An online diary (blog) where you write up your reflections on set tasks, and agree the necessary follow up action points with your Personal Tutor. The blog will then form a record of your progress and achievements throughout your course.
      You are welcome to add additional posts and features to your blog – it can ‘showcase’ your work to prospective employers, business partners etc
    • Why is it important?
      A place to address any minor issues or concerns before they have the chance to develop into major problems
      Employers are seeking high level skills of communication and networking in their potential employees
      To develop your digital identity that enables you to demonstrate your skills and ‘stand out from the crowd’ in the job market
      Useful feedback for tutors on what you like/dislike about your programme

    • The world is changing…
      Educators are no longer the ‘gatekeepers’ of knowledge
      Acquiring information is no longer the issue – critical evaluation is the key skill
      Contributing effectively to your community
      Educators and students are learning together
      “Sage on the stage” to “guide on the side”
