Practitioners who Teach : Professional Identities and Professional Development

Beaton, Fran (2015) Practitioners who Teach : Professional Identities and Professional Development. In: International Conference on Educational Development, 16th - 18th June 2014, Stockholm, Sweden. (Unpublished) (KAR id:57994)


This paper reports on research into the experiences and perceptions of novice and experienced professional practitioners in disciplines such as Health, Law and Performing Arts, simultaneously engaged in HE teaching. Being taught by someone who brings current professional knowledge and perspectives is seen as fruitful for students and the academy. However practitioner academics may experience disorientation and insecurity attempting to make sense of significantly different worlds. What are the implications for their professional development?
