Blogs as Continuing Professional Development

I got a message on twitter that 5 posts from this blog are now available to anyone who is a part of Continuing Professional Development in Scotland. It appears as though this means that people will be able to read my blog for some kind of credit.

While I am intrigued that my writing may make its way into any type of curriculum, it makes me think a whole lot more about how we package learning materials from others.

Can we make anything into curriculum? Can we offer credit for any type of academic pursuit?

I think that the kind of work that brings outside resources into the realm of canonized professional development is just wonderful. But, since they are linking to me, perhaps I am little biased.
