‘I’d just Google it’: media and home renovation practices in Australia

This is the first report of a project examining ways of making energy efficient home renovations mainstream rather than a niche activity as is currently the case. Homes are a major contributor to carbon dioxide emissions in Australia; most emanating from the 98 per cent of established homes rather than the less than 2 per cent of new homes built each year. We know from government and industry research that the Australian home renovation sector is very fragmented with many small-scale participants. This is the first Australian study to explore in detail ways in which media is used to influence and communicate home renovation practices involving a large number of small-scale home renovators and design and building practitioners.

Collaborating with students and practitioners to explore professional ways of thinking and practising and inform curriculum renewal – an example from physiotherapy

Abstract: Curriculum conversations are increasingly important to developing rigourous professionally oriented courses because today’s graduates will confront a highly complex world that is different to that of their predecessors. An understanding of professional practice -its historical, social, cultural and material influences -is needed to inform these conversations and form new ways of thinking about education for professional life. It is therefore valuable for universities and professional bodies, who are both involved in planning and regulating professional education, to learn more about practice from students and practitioners. Whilst students are the future of professions and function as an interface between what is intended and what is actually encountered, practitioners are already absorbed in the rhythm, routine and reality of the ‘work’, viewing practice -and practising- in ways that students have not yet encounter…

Developing professional touch – transitioning from laity to health professional: A qualitative research synthesis using Threshold Concept Framework

Introduction/Background: Students and practitioners use touch for assessment, delivery of car e and treatment. This context is different from normal social touch interactions, requiring students to become both competent and comfortable with professional touch (PT). However, PT includes social touch in relationship-building and empathy. We propose that PT could be usefully viewed through Meyer and Land’s Threshold Concept Framework (TCF). ‘Touch’ is rarely addressed explicitly within health professional curricula. Limited synthesis and guidance on developing this capability exists in the literature.Aims/Objectives: Identify features that assist/interfere with the development of PT. Methods: Qualitative research synthesis approach was used. A search of health professional literature was performed, limited to the last decade. Abstracts were read against criteria and a final set agreed. Analysis and synthesis were according to Major & Savin-Baden. TCF was used for first order analysis and subsequent analysis sou…
