What a year! As the lead for the Professional Development (PD) Portfolio I reflect on the expertise and generosity of ANZAHPE members and the wider Health Professional Community. I have been honored to belong to a dedicated and inspirational group supporting the development of the ANZAHPE ONLINE PD program. After the initial impact of COVID, this group were identified and quickly levered off the wonderful work by the 2020 Melbourne Conference organizing committee to plan and deliver a variety of PD opportunities during the year.
There have been many highs, some wonderful sessions, as well as areas to learn from as we tried new things. I applaud the community’s patience and kindness. We started the program with a launch session in early July and ended the series of sessions in December. We have recorded most of the sessions and I recommend all to visit or revisit the Ways of Seeing exhibition.
Looking forward we have already secured some exciting opportunities in 2021. Click here for more details.
The 2021 program starts with looking at Learning in (and for) a digital world by the wonderful Margaret Bearman. As we progress forward we will look to maximise the leaps in educational innovation. Also during the first part of the year we will pilot a string of PEaRLS delivering a signature ANZAHPE learning approach online. We are all enthusiastic to break new ground with these PD sessions.
ANZAHPE is an organisation that thrives on its community. We are grateful for the ANZAHPE Fellows and Associates who have helped facilitate some of our sessions. In 2021 we hope to involve more people in design as well as delivery of the PD program.
The following is a snap shot of some of the participants in the final session of the year.

We hope to continue to learn with you in 2021.
