Aims and scope
The publication of the Namibia CPD Journal for Educators (NCPDJE) is an important milestone in continuing professional development (CPD) in Namibia. Never before was there an opportunity for educators in Namibia to build and document their own knowledge base in CPD. The NCPDJE provides this opportunity. It is a platform for educators to:
• share experiences and best practices in CPD for educators;
• encourage practitioner research in CPD and education in general;
• identify current problems in teaching and learning in Namibian classrooms;
• encourage educators to use classroom research to solve problems encountered in teaching and learning;
• make recommendations on how teaching and learning can be improved in Namibian schools;
• cultivate a culture of research among educators;
• disseminate research findings;
• facilitate networking among educators; and
• foster cooperation and collaboration with scholars and researchers in education regionally and internationally.
