Practice wisdom development

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


Developing practice wisdom is neither an easy task nor something that “just happens” to wise people. This chapter begins with the premise that practice wisdom is something that can be pursued through a journey of reflection and appreciation.This argument is presented in the form of a story that takes up from a tale in a previous publication: “Realising practical wisdom from the pursuit of wise practice”. This chapter draws links between practices like interpretation, reasoning and judgement that can be seen to relate and contribute to the use and development of practice wisdom and may form a more tangible or familiar pathway for professionals to develop and refine their practice wisdom.
