Theory and practice in professional education programs – a systematic review


Working paper by Trine Kløveager Nielsen, PhD Fellow, DPU, Aarhus University.

Introduction


A fundamental component in professional education is the link between theory and practice. However, many students in professional education programs experience a lack of coherence between theory and practice which is often described as the theory practice gap. This PhD-project is part of ”Bridging the Gap”, a Danish research project conducted in collaboration between the Danish School of Education, Aarhus University (DPU), Danish Institute of Governmental Research (AKF), University College Capital (UCC) and the Engineering College of Aarhus. The aim of Bridging the Gap is to explore the relationship between theory and practice in 4 professional education programs, specifically teacher, nurse, social educator and engineer education, and to contribute with knowledge about how to bridge the gap between theory and practice in these educations. The purpose of this study is to contribute to Bridging the Gap by conducting a systematic review of the existing international research knowledge of the factors in education affecting the theory practice relationship in professional education programs.
