    The update model

    • The dominant model of CPE

    • Positivist paradigm:



    The update model

    • 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


    The update model

    • 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
