Armstrong, Paul-Alan (2018) Scholar Practitioner, Reflexive Professionals, the ART of Autobiographical Professional Development. International Journal of Online Graduate Education, 1 (1). pp. 1-14.

Item Type: Article


This paper reflects upon Davies (2017) proposition of the ethical, values-focussed HR professional by presenting an autobiographical reflexive account of a group of recent Masters graduates who completed a reflexive digital bricolage (Armstrong, 2018) as their final research project (Human Resource Reflective Project). The challenges facing encouraging CPD in students as future professionals beyond the use of learning logs (Holden & Griggs, 2011). This also proposes a method of overcoming and making sense of values (Gardner, 2009) and the struggles for identity, professional development and career development as discussed by Pettica-Harris and McKenna (2013).
