In line with recommendations of Professor David Croisdale Appleby highlighting the importance of a culture of continuous professional development (CPD) and considering the importance and potential of social and digital media, this is a presentation that offers a practical solution for blended approach using social media (Yammer) and organizational knowledge hub in combination with face-to-face forums that support practice learning and professional development for social workers and OTs.

Some of the objectives of this platform are:

It creates a dynamic learning environment that is grounded in professional practice;
It allows social learning and offer a supportive environment for CPD and sharing work related questions, challenges, and experiences;
It can overcome the divide in services;
It offers a digital platform that can serve as the foundation for developing e-portfolios and personal development plans.

So if you are interested in human resource development or CPD, or if you are interested in use of social media for cultivating a community of practice (CoP) or a community of interest (CoI) in your local authority to sustain a culture continuous learning and professional development then this presentation may be of interest to you.
