On Reflection - Professional Registration

A blog post from 29 August 2011 on revalidation by Profession Registration Board member Brenda Chawner:

When I first learned about the profession registration revalidation process several years ago, one of the things that impressed me most was the requirement for registrants to reflect on their professional development activities. I believe that being able to reflect on professional practice, and change what they do in response to new knowledge, is an essential requirement for anyone who wants to be considered to be a professional (in any field).

LIANZA Careers Survey Report 2013

The LIANZA Careers Survey is a rich source of information about our career choices, from qualifications to professional registration to continuing professional development.

In 2012 LIANZA hosted a national series of workshops on Careers in Libraries presented by Lynley Stone of The Information Workshop. To gain a solid understanding how library careers evolve in our rapidly changing world, an online survey was conducted on behalf of LIANZA, with the preliminary results from the survey being used in the workshops.
