'Becoming' a professional : an interdisciplinary analysis of professional learning /

by Scanlon, Lesley (ed.).

Publisher: Dordrecht ; London Springer 2011Description: x, 261 p. ; 24 cm.Notes: Includes bibliographical references and indexSummary: "Becoming" is used in this interdisciplinary work as an emergent, iterative concept of professional identity formation. The conceptual framework of "becoming", as well as the arguments in the book are intended to encourage "professionals" and those engaged in their education - to reflect on what it means to be a "professional" in the twenty-first century, an era dominated by the discourses of globalisation, "new mangerialism", multiculturalism and deprofessionalisation. We live in a world where not only scholars, but also a better educated client base informed by technological innovations, have issued unprecedented challenges to the traditional professional ideal. The once paradigmatic identity of the superiority of the Anglo-American professional, grounded in an exclusive knowledge-base and an altruistic "public-service" principle, are no longer tenable. The book will generate dialogue about the nature of professionalism through a multidisciplinary lens in chapters on medicine, nursing and teaching and in reference to social work, the clergy and engineering. Here, becoming a professional is a lifelong, extended process that constructs an individual's professional identity through formal education, workplace interactions and popular culture. It advocates the "ongoing" modality of developing a professional self throughout one?s professional life. What emerges from this work is a concept of becoming a professional that is quite different from the isolated, rugged, individualistic approach to traditional professional practice as represented in popular culture. It is a book for the reflective professional. ; Contents: 1.`Becoming' a Professional / Lesley Scanlon -- 2.Becoming As an Appropriate Metaphor for Understanding Professional Learning / Phil Hodkinson -- 3.Learning to Be -- At Work / David Beckett -- 4.Higher Education and Becoming a Professional / Madeleine Abrandt Dahlgren -- 5.Becoming Authentic Professionals: Learning for Authenticity / Gloria Dall'Alba -- 6.White Coats, Handmaidens and Warrior Chiefs: The Role of Filmic Representations in Becoming a Professional / Lesley Scanlon -- 7.Becoming a Medical Professional / Alan Bleakley -- 8.Professional Practice and Doctoral Education: Becoming a Researcher / Alison Lee -- 9.Becoming a Professional Doctor / Kirsty Foster -- 10.Becoming a Professional Nurse / Sandie Bredemeyer -- 11.Teacher Professional Becoming: A Practice-Based, Actor-Network Theory Perspective / Dianne Mulcahy -- 12.And the Conclusion for Now Is ...? / Lesley ScanlonAvailability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

"Employment precariousness" in a European cross-national perspective. A sociological review of thirty years of research /

by Barbier, Jean-Claude.

Publisher: Paris, France Universit de Paris. Centre d'Economie de la Sorbonne 2011Description: PDF, 38 p.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: "halshs-00654370, version 1 - 21 Dec 2011" Includes Bibliography p.35.Summary: From the paper: "What has been analysed in France mainly under the term ?pr carit de l?emploi? over the past 30 years was mostly dealt with differently in other countries (atypical, non-standard employment). Research on these issues dates back to the 1970s in sociology and institutional economics. More recently some political scientists have endeavoured to link up the labour market theme with developments in systems of social protection and they are talking about ?dualism? and ?dualization?. Despite the constant intellectual investment put into the topic, it is striking that indicators for comparative measurement of the phenomenon have remained rather unsophisticated, as the basic opposition between what Eurostat names ?temporary contracts? and ?open-ended contracts?. On the other hand, because of the spreading of the effects of work and employment flexibilisation into new countries, new categories are appearing since the early 2000s". ; This paper sociologically overviews, with a linguistic and semantic focus the meanings, social construction and usage of terms used in different countries and languages around concepts of precariousness, atypicality, non-standardness or marginality in employment.Availability: (1)

2010 update of the European inventory on validation of non-formal and informal learning - final report /

by Hawley, Jo | European Centre for the Development of Vocational Training | Souto Otero, Manuel | Duchemin, Claire.

Publisher: Thessaloniki, Greece European Centre for the Development of Vocational Training 2011Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Bibliography pp. 37-38Summary: The European Inventory provides a unique record on how validation is already being used at national, regional and local level to address issues relating to lifelong learning, employment and social exclusion. This is particularly important in the context of the current economic crisis, which has accelerated the importance of validation drivers identified in the 2007 Inventory, such as the need for effective re-deployment of the adult population into employment. A number of countries have recognised the role validation has to play in addressing skills shortages and in supporting those facing redundancy to identify and pursue an alternative career pathway. Other initiatives recognise the role of validation in combating social exclusion, by empowering 'the low qualified' and other disadvantaged groups to identify and understand their own competences and potential.Availability: (1)

21 hours : why a shorter working week can help us all to flourish in the 21st century /

February 2010 Bibliography : p. 34-36 INTO AND OUT OF WORKSummary: This report sets out arguments for a much shorter working week. It proposes a radical change in what is considered 'normal' down from 40 hours or more, to 21 hours. While people can choose to work longer or shorter hours, we propose that 21 hours, or its equivalent spread across the calendar year, should become the standard that is generally expected by government, employers, trade unions, employees, and everyone else.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

A 21st century solution to skill shortages in Australia /

by Quirk, Victor.

Publisher: Callaghan, N.S.W. Centre for Full Employment and Equity 2009Description: PDF.Notes: Working Paper no.09-04Summary: This paper argues for specific, major, institutional reforms capable of building a high-skilled internationally competitive labour force in Australia. It argues for replacing the current policy of maintaining labour underutilisation as a productivity driver, with a national system of counter-cyclical public sector employment (Job Guarantee) and ; skills formation infrastructure, organised on a regional basis. ; The first section introduces the issue of Australia's deficient skill formation capacity. Sections 2 & 3 summarise deficits in key labour market institutions, the Job Network and the tertiary education sector. Section 4 highlights the chronic failure of the private sector to provide supervised opportunities for novices to undertake skilled work. Section 5 argues that the state has a unique responsibility to act, while section 6 proposes necessary components of an institutional framework. The conclusion addresses the political question of opposition to full employment.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).
