This book offers a history of Continuing Professional Development (CPD) in the Australian context. It presents an approach that links the development of CPD to a series of 'missed opportunities' and the identification of three key themes (mandatory CPD, competencies and regulation/registration) as well as with national regulation for select health professions. It not only relates the evolution of CPD in Australia but also serves as a guide to examining the situation in other countries and the emergence of CPD in individual professions. CPD has been provided for many decades, but it has not been rated as a 'high priority' or a key area of provision and has not been the focus of discussions or disputes in the higher education sector or in vocational education circles. Nevertheless in describing CPD's development, evidence is presented that CPD has made a significant contribution to the broad field of vocational education.

The practice of Continuing Professional Education must be based on the concept of profession. In Malaysia, the concept of profession is academically still in its infancy and the practice is closely related to the providers' philosophies of profession. The author, Dr Balan Dass has done an excellent job in describing the factors influencing the practice of CPE in Malaysia and at the same time explaining the concept of profession in this book. This book should be the guide for both theory and practice of CPE in Malaysia Professor Dr. Shamsuddin Ahmad, School of Extension Education University Putra Malaysia Dr. Balan Dass has covered all aspects of how a professional provider should conduct and up-date continuing professional education (CPE) programmes.

Lifelong learning has become essential not only for professionals, but also for those they serve. Continuing professional education (CPE), an umbrella term used to describe the continuum of formal, nonformal, and informal learning opportunities that enable practicing professionals to continue to learn and to maintain professional competence across their careers, is the focus of this collection. The volume explores, analyzes, questions, and critiques CPE trends and issues across a variety of contexts, and it highlights new thinking and developments to assist providers and practitioners to re-envision their roles and set new directions in the field of CPE. This collection is inspired by the early seminal works of Cyril Houle who advocated that educational researchers and providers of CPE should listen to the experience of professionals as a basis for supporting their professional learning. This is the 151st volume of the Jossey Bass series New Directions for Adult and Continuing Education. Noted for its depth of coverage, it explores issues of common interest to instructors, administrators, counselors, and policymakers in a broad range of education settings, such as colleges and universities, extension programs, businesses, libraries, and museums.

This study examines recent developments in the continuing professional education of highly-qualified personnel (such as teachers, engineers, lawyers, physicians, and others), and focuses on their implications for higher education policies. It is a synthesis of the contributions of 17 Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) countries, mainly the industrialized nations of Europe, North America, and East Asia. Chapter 1 examines the changes in demand for continuing education in order to provide a context for considering the development of the various components over the last 20 years and for analyzing the significance of the growth of continuing education within the framework of higher education. Chapter 2 considers what continuing professional education is offered; how it is segmented; and how it functions in formal, non-formal, and commercial sectors; and the roles of public authorities with regard to the market. Chapter 3 is concerned with the consequences and challenges for institutions of higher education, given recent developments in continuing professional education for access, certification, funding, and curbs on development; while Chapter 4 examines the challenges for the future. Two appendixes provide statistical data and information on national contributions. (Contains 45 references.) (MDM)
