Society, Health & Vulnerability Call for Papers

Special Issue: Professions in development - Teaching and Practicing

Society, Health & Vulnerability

An opportunity has arisen to contribute high-quality research to this upcoming Special Issue of Society, Health & Vulnerability. Cited within the Emerging Sources Citation Index amongst a number of other citation and abstraction indices, research published within this journal is widely read across and beyond its scholarly field.

Call for papers:

Much can be said about studies of professions, but little attention has been given to the educational aspects of developing professional knowledge in higher education and the challenges of nurturing among students a sense of mastery and competence in their future professions.

In this special issue, we call on papers addressing research related to projects on profession-oriented research, teaching methods and skill development in health and social studies as well as teacher education.

Secondly, we welcome papers discussing professional development in health, social studies and teacher education. In particular, we welcome papers highlighting development of reflexivity and inclusion related to professional knowledge and development in these professions.

We welcome contributions from academics familiar with experience-based knowledge from the point of view of educators in the field of health, care or welfare professions or teaching professions. The papers can address theory, research, methods or developmental work and discuss teaching or other aspects of education that aim to develop students' ability to learn a profession. We welcome all papers discussing how competence can be developed, based on relevant theory and experience-based qualifications from teaching and educating.

About the journal:
