Abstract

Crossing boundaries in landscapes of practice is an important occasion of learning. However, a sense of identity as a capable person, knowledgeable about problems and their solution, in one context, may be difficult to express in another. In this chapter we explore the experience of students in practice-based education, as they move between academic and workplace communities, and between different communities in their work lives. We look at the challenges they face in these transitions, how they learn and develop resilience in the face of these challenges, and how they seek to translate learning from one part of the landscape into another.
