This course looks at what can help make science CPD as effective as possible, with some practical guidance for science staff. It starts by exploring what the evidence suggests and then looks at how this can be put into practice. The whole process of running a course is considered: starting at the planning phase as outcomes are written; examining the sort of activities (including assessment) that could be part of the CPD itself; and finishing with techniques to support participants post-course. It will also examines why and how we should be involving science practical work in our science CPD, and what we can do to improve engagement from all staff.
