Personal Development Plans Definition

A Personal Development Plan (PDP) is a form of portfolio assessment embedded within a larger development cycle. The PDP is also known as personal education planning (Evans et al., 2002), personal learning planning (Walker et al., 2003) and personal action planning (Challis, 2000). It is produced by identifying learning needs, often in collaboration with a tutor, appraiser or colleagues. Learning and professional development opportunities are selected to address the learning needs and later they are reflected upon by the learner and appraiser.
