    Abstract

    The nature of the relationship between universities and their societies has long been the subject of discussion and scholarly debate. This chapter takes this relationship as its starting point in order to examine the implications of social and political changes for those responsible for professional and practice-based education. Implicit in the positioning of university education for professional practice is that there is an interdependent relationship between higher education and practice, theory and work.
