This core unit is designed for EdD candidates in the first stage of coursework to prepare them to situate themselves as researching professionals and at the same time enhance their own professional practice. Students will engage in a critical analysis of their own professional practice and the professional practice of others. Students should develop a critical understanding of what constitutes the professions and professional practice both as a theoretical construct and as situated work. The unit provides students with the opportunity to engage with the research literature and to establish how different researchers approach the study of professional practice. On completion of the unit students should be able to demonstrate an in-depth understanding of the body of knowledge in their area/s of investigation and how this relates to the broader area of professionalism.
