CPD - Why Should I Bother?

A session at Technical Communication UK 2012

Wednesday 3rd October, 2012

2:30pm to 3:10pm (GMT)

We know we need to keep our skills and knowledge current, and many of us consider that we 'do' CPD as a matter of course... after all, we're here at the conference, aren't we? If it's so obvious, why do so many not bother? What are the barriers? And can we do something about them? We'll investigate what 'counts' as CPD (and what doesn't), and how much it's likely to cost us, both individually and collectively, as a profession, whether we engage with CPD or not. We'll look at what you can do now, whether you are an employee or freelance, and suggest ways in which the ISTC may be able to help. I can promise you that you won't be sitting and listening - this is going to be an interactive session so come prepared to get involved. This definitely will class as CPD - if you decide to engage in the discussion.
