The dominant model of CPE
  • Objective to ‘update’ information
  • Sometime known as Knowledge update or technology transfer
  • Typical two- or three-day short course
  • Using didactic instruction
  • Positivist paradigm:
slide6
Positivist model is the dominant epistemology of professional practice
  • Professionalism means when applying a research-based techniques – firmly grounded in the world of certainty, stability and rigor
  • The advance of basic knowledge which sometimes removes from practice creates a gap between theory and practice
slide7
Therefore informational updates – keeping up is the motif of CPE
  • The positivist model of knowledge focus on problem solving not problem definition
  • Problem definition filled with uncertainty, uniqueness, instability, and values conflict – dimensions of reality better addressed by soft knowledge such as artistry, craft, and wisdom
slide8
Problem setting: “…the process by which we define the decision to be made, the ends to be achieved and the means which may be chosen.” (Schon, 1983, pp. 21-69)
  • Keeping professionals up to date is a means, not an end in itself
