It’s good to see the fine CPD work of the EIS Learning Reps from all over Scotland being supported by the Glow team with their very own professional community going online. You can find out more about the launch that took place on Friday 29th May in Glasgow by visiting the GlowScotland blog.

I spent a very illuminating day with some of the EIS learning reps who came from all over Scotland to learn about our online CPD project, CPDScotland.
The 24 reps who attended over 2 sessions looked at, and discussed, the various aspects of the project, including the use of CPDFind and how Glow may become an invaluable tool for CPD.
In turn, I found out the variety of ways that EIS learning reps contribute to CPD in their local authorities. This varies from being an independent sounding board on CPD matters for their members, to the management and delivery of key aspects of CPD, including the role of professional recognition. I look forward to the day when EIS learning reps feature as providers of CPD in CPDFind.
It struck me that many of the EIS learning reps are well advanced in online CPD skills, given that some act as tutors for the Chartered Teacher programme in the University of Paisley, which is delivered online.
