Professional Development & Faculty Support Open forum
Welcome to the Open forum for the Professional Development & Faculty Support research theme. We encourage you to add you own ideas about what might be of major interest for this theme. The guiding question for this research area ie:
- What professional learning is needed to support learners, educators, researchers (LER) and institutional managers with the adoption of technologically mediated teaching and learning? What strategies and professional development models are required to provide professional learning opportunities?
This is our focus for the coming year. What is your focus for this research area?

The topic for discussion this first quarter of 2010 is David. Cavallo's paper on organisational growth. While this paper could easily fit within the Theories and Models and Curriculum Design questions of our research profile it also is critically relevant to the way in which professional development should/could and most often is not practiced or even thought of within the higher education sector. We invite you the examine the Cavallo article and provide you thoughts, suggestions, criticisms and recommendations to the Open Forum. Many thanks to David Jones for his recommendation of this paper. Cheers, Alan Wylie.
