Continuing Personal and Professional Development Framework

OCSLD offers a framework to support the Continuing Personal and Professional Development (CPPD) of those involved in teaching and supporting learning at Oxford Brookes. At the heart of the CPPD framework is the recognition that continuous improvement in university teaching is vital to enhancing the student learning experience. The framework builds on the good practice in professional development of teaching that exists both formally and informally across the University.

The framework encourages colleagues to reflect on their practice through self-review, gathering feedback from peers and students, inquiring into teaching practices and engaging in other development activities. It links together a set of institutional processes that will help to move these reflections into action and assist in disseminating and rewarding best practice in teaching and learning.

These processes, as represented in the diagram below, are
