Practice-based education: The Practice-education-context-quality nexus

    Research output: Book chapter/Published conference paperChapter (peer-reviewed)


    We present practice in this book as occupational practice, which encompasses the various practices that comprise occupations, be they professions, disciplines, vocations or occupations. For doctors, engineers, historians, priests, physicists, musicians, carpenters and many other occupational groups, practice refers to the activities, models, norms, language, discourse, ways of knowing and thinking, technical capacities, knowledge, identities, philosophies and other sociocultural practices that collectively comprise their particular occupation.
