From collusion to dialogue: Universities and CPD


Abstract of an article by Patricia Bryans and other from the CPD magazine now made available free online

In this article we argue that there has been increasing "commercialization" of CPD (by employers, professional associations, universities and training providers) which has led to short-term approaches, impoverished learning and a distorted view of knowledge. We argue that universities must not collude in that process but must encourage critical dialogue between all the parties which have a stake in CPD. Universities can play a key role of 'interested neutrality' and in this role are uniquely placed to facilitate inter-professional communication, to build dialogue which will enhance long term approaches to CPD and enrich learning and knowledge.
