PDP Academy was, in essence, a ‘change academy lite’ model of supported institutional development - a one year supported Institutional Development Programme to focus upon and make progress with key aspects of your work.
It was a specialist programme, though our definition takes ‘PDP’ in broad terms, including practice related to a range of related initiatives concerned to support the recording, reviewing evidencing and articulating of student achievements, initiatives such as:
• e-portfolio implementation;
• approaches to the verification of lifewide learning;
• approaches to implementing the HEAR, particularly in the context of its formative version;
• the development of PDP-practice to support key institutional agenda, such as student retention, employability or how PDP practice contributes to ‘the institutional offer’ to applicants.
