RSB CPD PDG IMHO: A mechanism for capturing your “evidence”

631 views

Published on

Slides from a presentation describing the merits of the Royal Society of Biology's CPD scheme. I can take no credit for the creation of the scheme, but have found it an extremely helpful way to capture the kind of "evidence" of ongoing professional development which is required for appraisals, awards and applications. This talk was given at BioSummit2017, an annual gathering of teaching-dominant UK Bioscience academics.
