    2.45 – 3.35Keynote presentation. From Novice to Expert - Personality and progression towards Expertise. Dr Andrew Dodgson, Vision Rehabilitation Training Ltd

    Continued Professional Development, comes in many forms. However, with research assigning 'Preferred Learning Styles' to the realms of mythology, how can we ensure that we get what we need to progress along the Novice to Expert continuum? Drawing on the key domains of Novice to Expert development within the RW's role, we will review and align personality traits with learning and professional development. Ultimately aiming to help us all, maximise our opportunities to develop as professionals.
