Lecturers experiences, challenges and prospects on continuing professional development
Mwanza-Kabaghe, S; Mofu-Mwansa, M
This study was undertaken at the School of Education,
University of Zambia, to establish factors that influence
lecturers to engage in Continuing Professional Development
(CPD) as well as factors inhibiting their participation in CPD.
To establish these factors, open-ended questionnaires were
used in conducting the study by means of a descriptive survey.
Data were analysed qualitatively using emerging themes from
the respondents' answers and descriptive statistics were also
utilised. The findings show that University lecturers are motivated
to engage in CPD to update their current qualifications and as
a way of showing professional competence. Among factors
inhibiting lecturers from taking up CPD was lack of funds, to
engage in some CPD activities and time constraints.
