Description

LIT Inaugural Practice Education Forum, Wednesday 11th December 2019 (10am -2pm), Millennium Theatre

Evolving Landscapes of Practice – Future Proofing Practice Education in Times of Change

The structured practice education forum aims to provide a friendly, informal environment in which colleagues can share their experience of practice-based education. We sincerely hope that during the day you will have the opportunity to network with colleagues from a range of professions. This will enable us to continue to ensure that professional education is grounded in practice providing the best possible support network for educators and students in practice across all disciplines and professions.


Lunch and Refreshments provided on the day.

Forum Outline

Investment in the next generation of early childhood, youth and community and social care professionals has to be a shared priority if we are to embrace the changing landscapes of practice. Emerging roles, new contexts and settings and varied pathways and frameworks for learners to become qualified professionals are amongst the many considerations. A workforce with diverse backgrounds and who are digitally native means we need to rethink some of our traditional approaches to practice based learning if we are to harness these opportunities. It is opportunities and challenges that provide the focus for the 2019 forum.

Forum Themes

  1. Modifying practice learning to changing service needs

This theme focuses on how changing service needs can impact practice learning experiences and facilitate new ways of working. These include:

- Innovative service design and integration of practice education

- New/emerging roles and practice education

- Evaluation of student learning in diverse contexts and settings

- Service user involvement in design of practice learning


2. Responding to new pathways to qualified practice

This theme focuses on how practice learning is responding to changes in policy, regulations and quality standards. Topics include:

- Impact of new standards on practice-based learning

- Early childhood education, community development and social care policy implications for practice based learning
