This section discusses how to meet those challenges. It identifies the learning and development processes that should be elicited in students in order to facilitate the development of attitudes and skills for professional practice. Five key principles of effective learning and their processes are considered: • Learning is an active rather than a passive process. • Reflection on learning develops wisdom or artistry in practice. • Collaborative learning enhances individual learning. • Authentic learning tasks develop professional competencies.

For practice, learning events either in the office or at an academic institution can develop team spirit and raise staff morale, improve performance by improving the corporate memory and result in more efficient use of resources. For the profession, academic research programmes and feedback courses can develop the knowledge base and protect specialist expertise. Professional learning is a continuous process, leading individual practitioners through a hierarchy of competencies and roles (Worthington 1995).
