This text exemplifies the growing involvement of universities in professional education at its highest level. It also demonstrates the increasing importance of education for the professions in the work of universities. It contains a wealth of practical examples and ideas about how universities can respond to the changing needs of students' initial professional training, continuing professional development and lifelong learning. At the heart of the book is a series of analytical case studies of developing practices that respond to the challenges to higher education at the start of the new millennium. These chapters address important themes in developing professional HE: partnership, independent learning, reflective practice, new technologies, intranets, World Wide web, distance learning, the international dimension, work readiness, assessment and standards. Many of the case studies test out ideas in action. The result is a handbook for practitioners of professional education in HE and a resource for staff and educational developers and higher education managers.
