Professionals Australia – Contribute to CPD
At Professionals Australia we are passionate about providing opportunities for our scientist members to enhance, strengthen and refine their technical skills and people skills.
We are seeking your involvement in building a comprehensive CPD program for members. Here is what we are looking for and what you can expect from us:
What do we need?
CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development. In other words, it’s anything you do to develop and/or maintain your skills as a professional. As you work, you pick up skills, knowledge and experience both formally and informally.
We are looking for presenters for pre-recorded professional development webinars on topics relevant to science. The knowledge and skills you present should relate to an scientist’s competency and capability in their job.
These can cover technical aspects of science, or they may cover soft skills, business skills, management or leadership.
Plan and Prepare
We will work with presenters to plan out a simple presentation, to ensure the process is quick and easy.
You can present on anything:
- Are you a subject matter expert?
- Are you involved in an interesting research project?
- Have you presented on a topic related to science recently?
The presentation is yours, so you structure the session however you’d like.
As a contributor to our CPD program, you will guide your fellow members as they learn. Put simply, you’re helping others acquire new knowledge, or adapt existing skills and knowledge.
You can share past presentations, published papers, case studies, industry updates and many more.
If you believe the membership can learn something, we want to hear from you!
We are looking for knowledgeable individuals to contribute however, we do not expect you to know everything.
Through a recorded PowerPoint presentation accompanied with discussion points, you will create your presentation, which can take place at work or home at a convenient time (including after hours).
We know you have busy lives, so we will work with you to assist in the delivery of the presentation and assist where we can.
Have a look through our Recorded Webinars for an idea of what we’re looking for.
The choice is yours!
What can you expect from us?
Increase your profile
As a contributor, you will have the ability to increase your visibility with other professionals in your field. Delivering CPD is a great way to maximise your exposure within your field. Take this as an opportunity to work on your own skills. Perhaps, it’s an opportunity to build on your resume.
You never know, any content you deliver could open doors for you.
Contributors will be reimbursed for their time and effort.
All content will be securely stored within the Professionals Australia website. It will only be accessible to members.
To learn more, please email Danie McNeil Project Manager – Professional Development firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also recommend a speaker or suggest content to be delivered.
