This chapter outlines the origins of the concept of deliberate professional and frames it within a discussion of notions of ‘professional’, ‘deliberate’ and ‘practice’. We suggest reasons why the ‘deliberate professional’ offers a way of redressing the balance of possibilities away from exclusive economic values towards more encompassing socio-cultural values in the globalised context of university education. We then discuss how our concept of educating the deliberate professional can be translated within the wider context of social and professional practice theories, critical university studies and critical pedagogy, into a pedagogy of deliberateness. We conclude by drawing out connections with the other discussions included in the book.
