How to evaluate the PDP book
In this chapter, the authors look at the elements in the plan as laid out in the Personal Development Plans (PDP) paperwork. For each element, the educational principles will be described. When authors write the educational priorities for our PDPs, it is usually intended that their complete the objectives within the following 12 months, which includes the time needed to ill in the forms and evaluate our learning. Because the plan is limited to a year, each of the objectives could be said to be time-bound. Once the plan is complete, it is considered important to evaluate both the outcomes of learning and the process of learning itself, the purpose being to help to make our future learning more effective. Evaluation can serve as a springboard to future learning, and it may be that in time to come such a meeting could encompass evaluation of the PDP and consideration of initial learning plan.
