Developing Critical Moral Agency Through Workplace Engagement
This chapter undertakes an exploration of the intersection of work integrated learning and the development of professional ethics, arguing for a focus on the development of an awareness of critical moral agency within the emerging professional. The chapter considers the construct of agency in the workplace alongside issues of power and subjugation created through the positioning of the emerging professional. Developing from this consideration it is argued that work integrated learning, combined with an effective and integrated professional ethics curriculum can empower the emerging professional to transform practice through accessing opportunities of agency.
