The ideal combination ofcontinuing professionaldevelopment expertise, content,and technology for leaders ofthe professional communitiesin Australia and New ZealandTeam expertiseContent Each in turnTechnology
NotesThe ideal CPD team calls on a wide range of skills. From programme direction,programme organisation, learning management, community collaboration, contentdiscovery, content development, outcomes monitoring, feedback, review. Through totechnological fluency, marketing, and sometimes sales, business management andfinancial support.The ideal CPD team also has capacity and flexibility, to deal with peaks in workload anddeliver projects on time.The right CPD team also has the right fit. Working with professional bodies andcommunities requires understanding of their cultures, and a culture that matches. It alsorequires teams that complement those within the professional bodies and communitiesthemselves, rather than duplicating skills.We draw from our experiences working with more than 800 professional bodiesglobally, and more than 30 in Australia and New Zealand.

Build on learning objectives* Notes Comprehensive programming delivers learning for professional practice, derived from the sciences, research, scholarly work, and evidence-based medicine through to management, communication skills, leadership and onwards. Across a wide range of subject areas, and connected via one program.

Flexible, fast approach Start with existing content Swap in and out over timeNotesWe use existing content as an accelerant. We publish 12,000 online books. We have around2000 journals online from some 800 professional organisations. More than 30 of these arebased in Australia and New Zealand. We publish world-leading management content in ourPfeiffer and Jossey-Bass imprints.

NotesThe best adult learning technology is clever. It enables collaborative development workand administration by teams working in multiple locations. It isn’t too clever: the tworeferences on the previous slide are to studies that indicate learning outcomes are nobetter with high-fidelity (ie high-cost) digital simulations than they are with low-fidelity.The best adult learning technology is built expressly for the adult learning community.Adapting technology built for higher education does not provide cost-effective solutionsfor all that regulated, adult, self-directed learning and CPD needs. It does not cost-effectively accommodate future developments (like movement beyond CPD intoMaintenance of Certification programming).The best adult learning technology is connected. It assures personal data security, itmeasures and reports outcomes. It collates and reports data ready for audit. Itintegrates with data systems already in place at professional bodies.For school and higher education, where learning is classroom-based and directed by atutor, we use WileyPLUS integrated with Blackboard and our expertise in Moodle. Forself-directed, adult learning, including for learning in regulated CPD environments, wemost often use the CECity platforms. These have been used by >2.3million professionallearners and >100 professional organisations, including the Royal College of Physiciansand Surgeons of Canada. They have been built expressly to accommodate the needsof learners from professional communities and for the bodies that represent them.
NotesThe best learning management system for CPD has sophisticated, robust, and highlycapable back-end, able to be operated (securely) by skilled people from a dispersedteam.It enables collaborative planning and project management across organisations. Itdelivers learning activities, processes activities, reports on outcomes, imports data foroffline activities.It separates learning management from the content delivery. So that adjustments canbe made to either, and so that new modes of content delivery can be incorporated fastwithout major re-engineering (eg HTML5). It is ready for the future. It can accommodateboth Maintenance of Certification and Re-certification activities, social and adaptivelearning.It has data collection mechanisms that enable outcome-driven needs assessment forfuture learning activities, to continuously improve learning programs, and to make surethey serve real learning needs.It can be designed to look and feel like an extension of any existing website, andseamlessly integrated.
