Abstract

This chapter looks at the implications of standards, external regulations and professional autonomy for university education. Protocols are seen as one way of representing (and enacting) professional practice, ranging along trajectories from negotiated to non-negotiableand from context-specific to non-context-specific. The challenge for higher education is to prepare students to meet professional standards and at the same time re-negotiate them.
