Over the past decade there has been a growing concern about the role of higher education institutions, and how they are meeting the needs of employers. Increasingly, universities are being asked by industry, government and funding authorities to help prepare students for industry with appropriate professional and work related skills. How then can tertiary educators design and implement learning activities to promote these skills? In this paper we will investigate a conceptual framework to promote the development of professional skills through reflective practice. Students are given a validated, testing instrument to identify their strengths and weaknesses in this area at the beginning and end of the semester.
