VRA Webinar: Auditing our practice – why should VR practitioners bother?

DATE / TIME 28/02/2023
12:00 pm - 1:00 pm



Part of the VRA’s regular CPD webinar series, this is an interactive session exploring how and why we audit our practice, and the potential benefits to be gained.

There will be an introduction to the VRA’s self-audit tool and how you can use it.

The session will provide an opportunity to reflect on what you currently do, how you audit your VR practice, and to learn together to develop good practices by sharing ideas, tools and benefits experiences of self-audit.

The session is being hosted by the VRA’s Professional Practice group, a subgroup of the VRA Board.
The purpose of this group is to take a lead in developing and maintaining a range of guidance and resources that will promote and support professionalism amongst VRA members. These will also provide some level of assurance to those who want to work with, commission, or refer to VRA members, and guidance as to what they might be able to expect from them.

It will be led by Dr Julie Denning, VRA Chair.
