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 2018 UQ architecture lecture series events online can claim one Informal CPD points for attendance, or the opportunity to 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 opportunity to earn 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 on the Design Online site by emailing a copy of your completed article to firstname.lastname@example.org
The article format is based on a simplified article which aims to share new knowledge, which includes an introduction, description, position and what’s next question. For more information on these prompts download the Design Online article template (Word).
Make sure you record your CPD hours from each 2018 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 as per Australian Institute of Architects. Check with your local registration board for your relevant CPD requirements.
