Rethinking Continuing Professional Development and Clinical Workplaces

Friday, May 17 from 1:00pm - 2:00pm Central Time

Free for SACME Members / $30 Non-Members

Session Overview

Join us for this interesting session, the first in a new series we are hosting with a number of authors who contributed publications to the recent Journal of Continuing Education in the Health Professions (JCEHP) supplement themed “Conceptual Advances in Continuing Professional Development in the Health Professions.” We will have an opportunity to hold conversations with scholars in our field who are examining and challenging some of the prevailing assumptions and proposing new empirical and theoretical insights.

In this session of our virtual journal club, we will explore ways of thinking about workplace learning and workplace learning environments. This will involve disrupting some assumptions about self-directed learners in CPD and instead direct attention to practices of learning at work and through work. By thinking about workplace learning as the intersection of workplace contexts, the organization of work tasks, and processes of learning, we open up new avenues for CPD research and practice. Through these expansive views of workplace, we may also explore opportunities for collaboration with others interested in workplace learning who might not consider themselves educators. In short, we will reflect on workplaces as more than the container in which CPD may, or may not, occur. Together, we will seek out new ways of fostering learning in these rapidly changing, complex contexts.

As always, we welcome your thoughts and perspectives and hope to see you engaged in our VJC.
