Knowledge and Understanding: Students know theories of professionalisation. The importance of academic education for the process and the product of professionalization is seen.Application of Knowledge and Understanding: Students can transfer theoretical knowledge to various institutional and practical contexts and see how it can be used to promote professional identity and in processes of evaluation and quality development.Assessment: Against the background of professional standards, students can analyze and assess relationships in institutions and organizations.Communication: Students can distinguish and respect the different positions, levels and reference contexts and consider them communicatively.

Long-term knowledge: Students know that the process of professionalisation is a dynamic process; they can develop strategies of reflexive and self-critical handling of their task in the context of lifelong learning. Support systems are known to them

The focus is on the question of what distinguishes professions from other occupations and which sets them apart as a subgroup. Theories of that topic will be considered and examples of professionalized work will be discussed in detail. General and field-specific basic operations of professionalized activities are named. In a third section, the necessary educational process will be focused on the basis of the reconstructed basic operations. The model to do an activity (that requires professionalisation) in professionalised manner will be discussed at the example of Interprofessionalisation. A key feature of professionalisation is that it is never been complet that it needs to be pushed further and further: intervention strategies, evaluation and other support systems for professionalisation in the pedagogical field are considered together with a guest from the field.
