Beaton, Fran (2016) In limbo? Practitioners who teach: professional identities and professional development. In: 20th Standing Conference on Academic Practice (SCAP), 7th - 8th July 2016, Warwick, UK. (Unpublished)

Abstract

This presentation investigates the experiences and perceptions of professional practitioners in disciplines such as Health, Law and Performing Arts, simultaneously engaged in HE teaching, and factors which are specific to these dual roles. It addresses three main questions. What do practitioner academics identify as tensions and opportunities of their situation? What influences their self-perception as members of a disciplinary community? Finally, what are the implications for their professional development?
