Professor Linda Evans presents keynote at Aston Business School
Professor Evans was delighted to be a keynote speaker at the annual conference of the International Professional Development Association (IPDA), hosted by Aston Business School.
To an audience of fellow academics and education professionals at Aston University, she spoke on: What do we still need to know about professional development? A research agenda for the field. Identifying gaps in the professional development knowledge base, she asked: ‘What is it, precisely, that is being developed when we speak of professional development?’ – a question that her audience found stimulating and thought-provoking.
