by Georgy Hadwen, Laura Galloway
International Journal of Human Resources Development and Management (IJHRDM), Vol. 8, No. 4, 2008

Abstract: This paper stems from the work done in the emerging area of Continuous Professional Development (CPD) and its impact on Self-Directed Learning (SDL) within the learning organisation. It focuses on a research question raised during research on what Social Workers (SWs) want in terms of information. In a poorly researched profession, the paper attempts to examine how a sample of SW professionals and practitioners based in local government are currently accessing and using information within the context of self-directed learning.
