In partnership with the Australian Institute of Architects, the Asia Pacific Design Library and UQ School of Architecture are pleased to offer lectures within the 2016 UQ Architecture Lecture Series as a professional development activity for architects.

As a requirement of ongoing learning to develop and maintain the knowledge necessary for the provision of architectural services that an architect normally provides, the objective of Continuing Professional Development (CPD) is to maintain and enhance professional knowledge and skills of architects, to maintain technical excellence and to better serve the community and profession.

Architects who attended or who watch 2016 UQ architecture lecture series events online can claim two Informal CPD points for attendance, or earn two Formal points with completion of the Design Online written exercise which reflects on new knowledge and the ideas presented (AACA competency: Design).

To gain the two Formal points you will need to reflect on the lectures you attended or watched online by developing a written article which can then be used to support your documentation of CPD points. You can also submit your article to the Asia Pacific Design Library for consideration to be published live on the Design Online site by emailing a copy of your completed article to or by registering on the Design Online site and submitting it electronically.

The article format is based on a simplified model of creative propulsion, which includes a starting point, position, description and what’s next. For more information on these prompts download the Design Online article template (Word) or read our article, What is a Design Online Article?

Make sure you record your CPD hours from each 2016 UQ Architecture lecture series event you attended or watch, reflect and create an article. Don’t forget to keep a copy of your completed article for your CPD records.
