In the shifting of universities towards a more clearly economic imperative rather than social good, the relationship between higher education teaching and professional practice has become more apparent in the courses offered by universities and their relationship with employment and employers. This paper envisions all high-levelvocational education as professional and discusses how an understanding of the phenomenology of transdisciplinary practice could help define how it might be structured, and with whom, in professional practice. Specifically, the paper considers a phenomenological understanding of how knowing can be conceived of a patterning of causes which forms the basis of the concept of a lifelong curriculum, or currere, might reconceptualise the curriculum from a course outline to what Pinar calls ‘a complicated conversation’ (Pinar, 2011).
