Abstract

Argues that enhanced professional development and writing for publication are related activities and are mutually beneficial.By aiming for a more rigorous form of professional writing, greater insight into one's professional practice is possible. The simple examples of the workplace experiment and case study that this paper briefly sketches out could help practitioners improve the type of 'practitioner research' that they undertake.
