Abstract

Teacher-practitioners are a unique community, working across cultural and creative sectors and within Arts higher education (Arts HE). The authors argue that higher education programmes like post-graduate teacher training certificate courses do not meet practitioners’ professional development needs. Higher education institutions (HEIs) have the potential to develop wider models of creative industry workforce development through offering practice-based staff development to its teacher practitioners. The authors argue that academia has responsibilities to engage with practitioners by; (1) supporting them in pursuing practice outside of HE and in maintaining their identity as practitioners, acknowledging this as central to the value of their role; (2) exploring how practice-knowledge can be made available to students and (3) supporting practitioners in managing processes that make the teaching-practice relationship mutually beneficial to their practice (industry) and the teaching and learning community.
