PM612 Professional Development

Module Summary

In Teaching for Quality Learning at University, John Biggs and Catherine Tang note that employer

feedback regularly reveals dissatisfaction with graduates’ abilities both to self-assess accurately, and to give and receive effective peer feedback. Yet these adaptive and developmental skills are becoming increasingly crucial for graduates struggling to pursue personally and professionally rewarding life course development.

This module gives you the opportunity to develop your self-assessment and peer feedback skills whilst undertaking a significant programme of self-chosen and self-directed professional development. You may choose to focus on professional development relating to your musicianship; your business aspirations; your personal development; or your efforts to develop the skills to undertake a successful Professional Project for PM611.

The module will take you through the stages of identifying professional development needs; setting yourself effective output and outcome goals; developing an informed plan; putting the plan into action; reviewing progress and adapting plans and actions to improve them; and undertaking a final impact analysis to judge how effective your development has been.

Throughout the module, you will work closely with a small number of peers to offer and receive feedback, and support on both your developmental activities and your critical writing about these activities.
