ISSUES IN PROFESSIONALISM CONFERENCE
Centre for Educational Research (CER) Annual Conference

Issues in Professionalism

Tuesday 5th July 2011   13.00 – 17.30,

Universityof Derby

What does it mean to be a ‘professional’ today? Is it to be compliant and regulated or is it still possible to be an autonomous professional, whatever your discipline is? The idea of a ‘new’ professionalism is increasingly discussed but the meaning of professionalism is now uncertain.

The conference will open with a Keynote Speech by Gary McCulloch, the Brian Simon Professor of History of Education at the Institute of Education, University of London, who will place professionalism in its historical context. Various issues in professionalism will then be examined in a series of workshops and the day will end with a panel debate around the question “What does ‘professionalism’ mean today?”
