Professional education through the practicum process enables human service students to apply their skills and prepare themselves for making the transition to practice. In the Field, with its focus on life long learning, helps students to enhance those essential skills and to use them effectively in the formation of sustainable work practices.
The book examines the contemporary context in which learning takes place. It discusses opportunities for embedding action learning into professional practice, and builds on the action learning approach by analysing the learning process and its implications for particular groups and communities. It identifies important knowledge, strategies and skills essential for transforming learning into practice, and is well illustrated by relevant case studies, vignettes and exercises.
