This webinar is the second in a series of five, organised by the International Career Development Peak Body Network that includes the Career Industry Council of Australia (CICA), the Career Development Institute (CDI), The Canadian Career Development Foundation (CCDF), The South African Career Development Association (SACDA) and The Career Development Association of New Zealand (CDANZ). The aim of the webinar series is to stimulate debate about our profession and our role as career development practitioners in the post-covid world
Career theory provides a foundation for our field by offering a broad range of perspectives on career development. Over more than one hundred years, career theories have been proposed, researched, and applied. Our field is now in a position where it is informed by a range of contemporary theories as well as long standing theories that have served the field well, some of which for over half a century.
One of the purposes of theory is to inform practice and a sign of best practice is its grounding in theory. Career theory however, is developed in the contexts of time and place. As career development has expanded beyond its original contexts, consideration has been given to its appropriateness for all people, especially in non-western and developing country contexts.
The webinar features three short presentations designed to stimulate discussion and reflection on career theory, its relationship to practice, and its applications in settings outside its origins. The session will be chaired by Dr Mary McMahon.
Professor Emeritus Wendy Patton, Queensland University of Technology, Australia
