This book, first published in 1992, sets out the belief that the placement element of courses should be designed from the start as a genuine educational experience. The learner most not merely live through experiences which are supposed to lead to personal and professional development, but must reflect on experiences in a way which is planned to lead to such development. This book will be of practical value to educators responsible for supervised work experience at all levels in further and higher education.
