Pauline Taylor, Narelle Patton

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


    In this chapter, we explore notions of practice communities and practice leaders, seeking to illuminate how, and to what extent, different voices are shaping contemporary practice discourse. We use the term “practice communities” to include all who contribute to the evolution of practice through actively instigating change and employing constraint: practitioners; neophytes; society; those with whom who we practice; accreditation bodies; policy-makers and, managers.
