Developing Training Field Manual
The world is changing and so is the world of learning and development. This 'wiki' is intended to be a ‘field-book’ or ‘manual’ for trainers who are supporting changing organisations into the future. This document is not a how-to manual although such insights may be in evidence. Rather, it provides the next generation with ideas and approaches to their own practice drawn from the inquiry of others .
It is a participative space where ICTI members can chip in with their own perspective, suggest areas and topics to be added or correct errors and update with more recent ideas and practice.

Continuing Professional Development (CPD)
Most trainers will, sooner or later, find themselves in a situation when they recognise that those they are working with know more than they do about the topic. Often we see that the profession or subject has moved on rather faster than we would have liked and current practice is not what we left behind to focus on the learning and development of others.
So the question of our own professional development will quickly come to fore. The Institute's Code of Professional Practice recognises the importance of a process of development which draws upon the lessons we learn as we go along.
The skills of reflection are key to our development and this section of the Wiki offers some tools which trainers may find helpful in identifying their own needs and development pathway. There are also suggestions for further reading and activities which may prove helpful in developing the reflexivity that effective professional development anticipates.
Any suggestion here is likely to be revised along the way. So feel free to add your thoughts, corrections and new ideas. Instructions on how to do this can be found by following links to Contributing to the wiki.
