What counts as CPPD

The University CPPD framework is inclusive of many different forms of professional development activity. The framework promotes the development of learning and teaching through inquiry, discussion, review and future planning. Much of this development happens through participation in academic communities, either within your Department or externally.

Examples of professional development activities include:

  • participating in informal peer or disciplinary networks
  • sharing teaching practices within and across disciplines at conferences, seminars and workshops
  • conducting small-scale investigations into your own teaching
  • reading literature to inform practice
  • publishing case studies of practice
  • attending curriculum development and review meetings
  • participating in course design intensive (CDI) workshops
  • analysing feedback from students or colleagues
  • mentoring colleagues in teaching and learning
  • external examining and reviewing
  • preparing applications for teaching projects or awards
