This module is intended to develop an appreciation of the nature of dual professionalism in contemporary education. This module will provide students with an insight into the values of being a dual-professional in industry and education via discussing their relevance and more importantly, how these are developed. Within the lecture content, students will explore professional accreditation/industry recognition alongside how to best embed these skills to effective pedagogical practice. Following this, students will be exposed to the necessity of continued professional development (CPD) and how to determine a course of action for their own CPD needs. The development of knowledge and skills within this module will enhance students’ ability to be a competent dual-professional in modern education. The work-focused and applied nature of assessment for this module will provide the students with a ‘real-life’ example of professionalism in practice.
