About this book


For educators, scholars, practitioners and researchers this book offers an opportunity to explore and engage with practice-based education theories and concepts in real life teaching spaces. It is a place to see theory embodied and situated within PBE practices. It is also an opportunity to see how educators and scholars from other disciplines are applying theory to understand teaching and learning in their particular area. This volume provides an opportunity for readers to deepen their understanding of practice-based education and broaden and critically appraise their strategies for engaging with practice-based education theory. And, it provides a means of extending theory and realising new practice-based education theory through the lens of exemplary practice. There are three sections in the book: • Section 1: Practice-based education for life and work • Section 2: Practice-based education in action • Section 3: Practice-based education realisations
