In this subject university teachers develop their understanding of themselves as learners and how they can make better use of professional development opportunities. Participants use their experiences of undertaking a program of professional learning in a higher education workplace to reflect on the way they typically like to learn, their strengths and weaknesses as a learner and the aspects of their workplace that enhance or inhibit their efforts to reflect on their work. Participants have the choice of exploring a wide range of topics relevant to their academic work, including research supervision, technology-enhanced learning or research-led teaching in their discipline. Credit can be gained towards subject completion by participating in formal professional development activities offered in the University such as Mental Health First Aid, the LEAP modules on entrepreneurship or project management. Participants review these learning experiences to discover how they deal with unexpected situations and changes that need to be made to their approach to learning in the workplace that leads to practical learning outcomes for their future practice.
