Dr. Stephen Powell PhD: Innovating the development of Work Focussed Learning in higher education

Where possible, I have indicated my percentage contribution to the portfolio item and most of these were agreed with collaborators and letters submitted as a part of application process.  Where this wasn’t possible, I have estimated a percentage contribution following discussions with my supervisors.

As mention in the introduction, the issue of contributions to development of practice is a vexed question as by the nature of activity, it is possible that many people have made contributions and recognising them all is not possible.

In some cases, portfolio items are commentaries on the work I have been involved in and are used as evidence of impact and, therefore, percentage contributions are not applicable.
