Linking CPD paradoxes with personalised & connective learning

It is interesting to link the 7 paradoxes within CPD as described by Megginson & Whittaker in their newly published book ‘Continuing Professional Development’ with connective & personalised learning. The paradoxes are;

compulsion or voluntarism

employer or individual responsibility

teaching or learning

personal development or organisational learning

life purpose or life experience

values driven or pragmatic development

journey or exploration

Personalised & connective learning where the learner is at the centre of the experience would be characterised by personal development, voluntarism, individual responsibility and learning. Personalised learning could be seen as a journey but not one that purely takes you from A to B, but one that is full of choice, networking, connections and discoveries

  1. A journey as movement from moment to moment. Optimism can lead to lots of risk taking along the journey, finding more connections.
