Professional practice, learning and education: social and material entanglements.

The 3rd ProPEL International Conference will be held June 14-16, 2017. The conference will be hosted by Linköping University, Sweden, and organised in collaboration with the University of Technology Sydney, Australia. Both institutions are members of the ProPEL International Research Network, based at the School of Education, University of Stirling. The ProPEL Network promotes leading edge research and knowledge exchange in issues of professional and vocational learning, practice and education.

The conference welcomes research that applies contemporary practice oriented, sociomaterial theories and innovative research methodologies. The aim is to critically explore the emergent nature of professions, professional practice and knowing, and systems of professional education. For 2017 we particularly encourage papers that explore the role of and relations between professional education and work in meeting contemporary challenges in professional practice.


Changes made in the program during the conference will be posted here.
