Conference season is quickly approaching for many Canadian academics and with all of this travel comes conversations about professional development. In this episode, I discuss the differences between professional development and professional learning. I also tackle questions of ongoing career development, active learning, and the funding of professional growth opportunities.
I would love to hear your thoughts on professional development and professional learning. Leave a comment or send me a message on Twitter.
