As you may be aware in May Active IQ launched a new way for education professionals to complete free and simple online CPD hosted at https://www.linkedin.com/groups/7403181. This is CPD that can be accessed at any time, there are no booking requirements and no need to commit to a certain level of involvement.
Since the launch there have been a number of new topics added to promote discussion and ongoing learning and development. The aim is to add one subject per month and topics will range from those designed to develop your technical knowledge and skills as well as general and transferrable knowledge and skills.
Most discussions include links to open access documentation, literature, guidance and research that might not only be useful for your own development, but it may offer some additional resources for learners etc.
All subjects are still open for discussion and will remain open for a period of 12 months, allowing contribution at any time.
Up and coming discussions in July:
- Current concepts of periodisation – which are the most effective?
Existing topics available for comment on Linkedin include:
- Innovative ways to deliver guided learning
- Squatting technique – is there a right, or wrong way?
- Repeated eccentric training may help to reduce delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS) as a consequence of the repeated bout effect (RBE).
- Exercise and education help to prevent episodes of low back pain.
- Fitness DVD research: 1 in 7 motivational statements found to be negative.
- Static vs. Dynamic warm-up stretching.
- Addressing obesity in children.
- A healthy diet, could it be different for each individual?
- Barefoot training to develop a strong foot.
- PTs in GP surgeries.
- The Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF).
- Common and emerging trends in qualification delivery, assessment and quality assurance.
All you need to do to join the conversation is:
- Join the Talking – Active Leisure Qualifications Interest Group on Linkedin https://www.linkedin.com/groups/7403181
- Look for posts that start with the ♦ symbol.
- Reflect on and evaluate the information, providing any opinions or thoughts via the comments box.
Reflections and contributions that add to the discussion will be rewarded with an E-certificate showing 1 hour of CPD. This can be used as evidence when presenting CPD to employers and professional associations.
