This seminar explores action research we undertook that explored how to de-stabilise established knowledges about a profession and co-construct a new knowledge relevant to both a specific place and the future needs of society. The context was a field trip to a remote Lakeland valley where we used Dewey's idea of 'occupation' to invite students to consider the affordances of the valley, the needs of society and their own passion to develop a praxis that transformed rather than reproduced established professional expectations.
