This ground-breaking book focuses on the view of practice knowledge as involving a varied and dynamic landscape of practice. In the term landscape of practice the authors explore the complex system of communities of practice including not only the practice of practitioners such a...s nurses, teachers, child-minders, managers, but also that of researchers, professional educators, curriculum designers, regulatory agencies, professional bodies, policy makers, local management and recipients of services. It combines a strong theoretical perspective grounded in social learning theories with stories from landscapes of practices. While having the coherence of an authored book it also brings in the voices of broad range of contributors who occupy different locations in their landscapes. These stories of practice locate the book within different contemporary concerns such as social media, multi-agency, multi-disciplinary and multi-national partnerships, integrating academic study and workplace practice and the challenge of managing personal continuity in a portfolio or fragmented career.
