Agency-based practice learning: literature review

Learning For Effective And Ethical Practice
Published on 14 Mar 2004

This report reflects the requirement of Objective 1.3 of the LEEP Project: Systematically review and thematically summarise the literature (using both existing summaries and new sources) concerned with agency based practice learning across a range of settings, drawing conclusions designed to assist HEIs to develop effective approaches. The literature review presents a summary of current practice and of problems associated with the supply of practice learning, and provides an outline of suggested solutions for the future. Given the limited time available to complete the literature review it is not intended to represent and exhaustive summary of all the literature available on the subject of practice learning but the intention is to focus on key themes that may assist Higher Education Institutions in the development of new effective approaches.
