Professional Identity Development: A Review of the Higher Education Literature
Trede, Franziska; Macklin, Rob; Bridges, Donna
Studies in Higher Education, v37 n3 p365-384 2012
This study examined the extant higher education literature on the development of professional identities. Through a systematic review approach 20 articles were identified that discussed in some way professional identity development in higher education journals. These articles drew on varied theories, pedagogies and learning strategies; however, most did not make a strong connection to professional identities. Further research is needed to better understand the tensions between personal and professional values, structural and power influences, discipline versus generic education, and the role of workplace learning on professional identities. (Contains 2 tables and 1 figure.)
