Professional Development Survey Results

On Monday, we posed six questions to the AV-1 community about the value of professional development. This is my analysis of your responses. Please let us know what you think.


First, we fall into a pretty tight band with regard to how many Professional Development (PD) opportunities we get per year. 73% of respondents are able to arrange up to six opportunities, and not a single respondent indicated getting over 10 opportunities. Six of us responded that they get no PD. 

We would love to hear more from those of you who get no PD… is that by choice or for some other reason?

AV-1 Survey: Professional Development

climb the ladder, take the survey Our recent pre-InfoComm survey told us that 63% of AV-1 readers attend InfoComm for educational (Professional Development) purposes. This got our readers, and us at AV-1 HQ, asking more and more questions about professional development. 

The questions came more quickly than we could answer…

Is InfoComm the best place to engage in Professional Development? 

Are there other great ways to continue to learn??

Are technology directors and managers getting all the Professional Development they feel is required???

How come we drive on a parkway and park on a driveway????

We knew the only way to get the low-down was to go back to you, knowledgeable readers, and ask a few more questions. Please take a minute to fill out the survey and let us know what/if you are doing for professional development. As always, the results will be posted by next Monday.
