17 Generated by staff development practitioners Peer review workshops –submit new resources –review and evaluate submitted resources –agree additions –review development process Developing the resources

18 Workshops - discussions and sharing On line evaluation and feedback forms to be used with each resource These will generate a ‘history of use’ Discussion forum for issues arising from staff development activity based on the resources Bi-annual meetings? The community of practice

19 How do you currently meet the development needs of health educators? What are the key themes and issues of interest to the education development community Discussion groups – a.m

20 Share own resources within group (in pairs Each pair develops/refines activities with plans etc Experiment with particular activities or parts of activities Review another groups ‘activities’ Feedback to larger group and discussion Determine which activities will be added Workgroups

21 What are the potential applications of the current resources? How can they be most effectively promoted and utilised? How can we extend and enhance the quality of the resources? What areas are least well resourced? What new kinds of resources and activities should we develop? Discussion group – p.m

22 The next steps Invitation to contribute resources Email communication Invitation to trial and evaluate resources Next workshop in approx six months
