All sessions provide informal and formal CPD points. Your attendance counts as informal and all sessions are eligible; you need to submit a written report to claim formal CPD points. Please note you cannot claim both formal and informal points for the same session.
Formal assessment will take the form of a written report about the session attended. This means that you can choose to undertake any session as formal CPD according to your own requirements and interests.
Format: Written report on the session attended.
Structure: You may use whatever structure you believe is appropriate. Your report should focus on what you learned from the presentation/discussion, rather than just being a repetition of the session content. A possible structure is suggested below.
Length: 400 words (approximately)
Time: It is expected that the assessment will take 15 minutes to complete per session
Submission: You must submit your report to the Conference website to claim the session as formal CPD.
Deadline: Friday 5 June 2015 – Reports must be submitted no later than this date. We advise you to submit your report within the following week so the content is fresh in your mind.
Assessment: The report should be of suitable quality for public review.
Check your own report against those published on the website.
Reports will vary and most will provide a unique ‘take’ on the session.
Compare the perspective and issues covered with those in your own report: what can you learn from others and their differing/similar views?
Records: A certificate of submission will be sent to you acknowledging receipt of your report and identifying the CPD points earned.
Keep the certificate and a copy of your report for your personal CPD record.
Questions: Email us: firstname.lastname@example.org
The following structure may help to make the report a useful learning exercise for you and your potential readers. The questions are provided as prompts for reflection and discussion.

• What were some of the key points/issues raised during the presentation?
• What are some implications of these for the practice of architecture broadly?
• What other issues/ideas do the key points suggest for you?
• What did you learn from the presentation/discussion?
• What will you do differently in your own workplace or apply personally as a result?
