To argue that enhanced professional development and writing for publication are related activities and are mutually beneficial.
An opinion piece.
That by aiming for a more rigorous form of professional writing, greater insight into one's professional practice is possible.
The examples of research scenarios sketched out in this editorial are pure suggestions which have not been carried out as real experiments. However, this would be possible and even desirable in order to prove the hypothesis outlined in the paper.
If these conclusions are valid, then writing for publication has a clear practical benefit for practitioners.
The simple examples of the workplace experiment and case study that this paper briefly sketches out could help practitioners improve the type of “practitioner research” that they undertake.
