During the last decades the semi-professions have undergone dramatic changes. What has become widely known as ‘the academic’ turn has hit professions such as teachers and preschool workers demanding higher academic skills in forms of bachelor degree level. Arguments have been that the practice of these professionals has changed - and has become more cross-professional, more complex and analytic and reflective competencies have entered the policy papers of these human-professions as central, important forms of knowledge. These bachelor degrees in Denmark within the field of education (teaching and preschool pedagogy) have therefore been subjects of reformations regarding structure and content. In this paper we specifically deal with three major and overlapping tendencies in these changes that create new opportunities within the field of educational design and development: namely identifying design challenges and generating solutions in the form of design principles when moving from a focus of knowledge to a focus of competences.
