Evaluating GraysNet: an online PDP tool for use in an art and design context.
Malins, Julian; McKillop, Chris
Personal development planning (PDP) is a phrase that encompasses a number of activities including reflecting on learning, recording of achievement and career planning. Embedding these activities is a goal widely shared across HE, but strategies for achieving it vary widely. This paper provides an overview of some of these strategies including online web-based tools developed to facilitate the PDP process. The paper describes an ADC-LTSN funded research project which evaluated a PDP system embedded within a managed learning environment specifically developed to support teaching and learning in an art and design context. The evaluation has resulted in a reappraisal of the way in which PDP can be supported online and makes recommendations for future developments in this rapidly developing field.
