CPD Log

Reflective, collaborative learning to enhance your career
The key element that makes the AMA a CPD scheme is the reflection and recording of development activity.

The CPD Log supports your learning by creating a framework for recording and reflecting on that learning.

The CPD Log has the following headings to help you capture your learning:

• Date – the date the development activity was undertaken.
• Hours – captures the number of hours associated with the development activity.
• Activity – a brief description of the activity.
• Reflection – captures the ‘take home’ learning from the development activity – what have you learned, and how could you apply it.

This version also includes the following optional headings, which you can use depending on the approach and level of detail you want to include:

• Knowledge Journal criteria – highlighting the KJ criterion the activity relates to.
• AMA criteria – highlighting the AMA criterion the activity relates to.
• Principles of Code of Ethics – highlighting the CoE principle the activity relates to.
• Principles of Museums Change Lives – highlighting the MCL tenet the activity relates to.

You can also add other headings, for example – some AMAers wanted to include a column with the following heading – Goal number. This enabled them to collate all the development activity associated with a particular development goal in their CPD Plan.

If you have any questions about the CPD Log then please email cpd@museumsassociation.org
