Professions and Professional Learning in Troubling Times: Emerging Practices and Transgressive Knowledges"

How can we understand the complexities of professional practices and knowledges amidst changing demands, massive restructuring, funding cuts, market pressures, and new audit regimes? What research methods can best trace the emergent nature of professional knowledge sources and strategies; the contradictions and negotiations of professionalism enacted across diverse boundaries; the material and spatial nature of embodied professional knowledges; and fundamental changes in professional responsibilities?

Set in beautiful Stirling at the entrance to the Scottish highlands, this conference promotes leading edge research and theory that examines the most pressing issues in professional practice, education and learning, today and for the future.
