The value of recognition programs: The new PSF and beyond
25 May @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm AEST
The TELedvisors SIG is delighted to present this webinar on the value of recognition programs. In this webinar Professor Abby Cathcart (QUT) will outline the changes to the Professional Standards Framework (PSF) which will come into effect in 2023. The PSF has been widely used in Australia as part of academic and professional development in learning and teaching, and we explore how useful it is as part of career development in the ‘third space’ and what the impact of the changes might be.
In the second part of the webinar, we will facilitate an open discussion about accreditation and recognition programs. If we were to develop one from scratch for TELedvisors, what would it need to include and what would it look like? How would it ensure that experience and capabilities are recognised and how could it form the basis of career progression?
