Achieving continuous professional development in higher education

Mandviwalla, Munir, Schuff, David and Ganju, Kartik (2015) Achieving continuous professional development in higher education. pp. 127-128.


Traditional higher education technology emphasizes knowledge transmission. In contrast, the Community platform presented in this paper follows a social approach that interleaves knowledge delivery with social and professional skills development, engaging with others, and personal growth. In this paper, we apply learning and complex adaptive systems theory to motivate and justify a continuous professional development model that improves higher education outcomes such as placement. The paper follows action design research (ADR) as the research method to propose and evaluate design principles.
