As part of the CoSIE project, PVM’s Hayley has written a blog over on the project website called It Ain’t What You Do, It’s the Way that You Do It – That’s What Gets Results, looking at why practice-based knowledge needs to be included in the core understanding of co-creation. You can read an except below, or follow the link at the end of this blog to read the feature in its entirety.
“Practice makes perfect” is a well-known saying, but why is practice – as a professional discipline – disregarded in certain spheres?
