Integrate the freshest research with clinical practice Occupational therapy (OT) practitioners often lack the fundamental skills to conduct or effectively use research, illustrating a disturbing gap between the advancement of theoretical concepts and the extent to which concepts are actually applied. The Scholarship of Practice: Academic-Practice Collaborations for Promoting Occupational Therapy closes this gap by presenting a conceptual framework that integrates theory and research with clinical practice. Leaders in the field provide insightful, thought-provoking ideas and strategies to promote research and facilitate effective new concepts and theories to hands-on practitioners. The Scholarship of Practice is a model that blends education with practice, dynamically applying theoretical principles of occupational therapy learned in the classroom to their actual clinical practice. This framework is a planned, focused, practice-relevant way to educate students, build a tradition of independent scholarship, consult with community-based organizations, and contribute to best occupational therapy practice. Case studies show how partnerships and collaborative efforts can foster and apply important advances and rehabilitative strategies within communities. Examples of faculty-practitioner partnering at Duquesne University and the approach to scholarship at the University of Illinois are clearly discussed. This cutting-edge compilation of ideas and research is extensively referenced and filled with useful diagrams and tables. The Scholarship of Practice: Academic-Practice Collaborations for Promoting Occupational Therapy discusses: evidence-based scholarship participatory action research single case study designs approaches that provide scientific evidence supporting OT services how theory, models, or frames of reference are modified as a result of practice demands or expectations best practices in education continuum of care services the “New Doors Model” that provides occupation-based services—while providing new opportunities for occupational therapists the Practice-Scholar Program at Duquesne University the Concerns Report Method research on the outcomes of practice that support improved services creative fieldwork education that engages students in the scholarship of practice and more!

The idea of a 'scholarship' of teaching and learning in Higher Education (HE) is relatively new and less mature, in some respects, than scholarship in some other disciplines. The first title, "The Scholarship of Teaching and Learning in Higher Education", is a 'keystone' for the "Helping Students to Learn" series in the sense that it binds it together, introducing the idea of scholarship in HE teaching and learning: what does 'scholarship' mean in this context, what is its purpose and value, how is it achieved, and what purposes might it serve for individuals and institutions? The series combines practical and theoretical material to support new lecturers. This book defines the field of HE teaching and learning, with an international frame of reference, including strategies for continuing professional development.The key objectives of the book are: to explore the meaning and nature of the scholarship of teaching and learning in HE from a range of perspectives; to analyse the forms and characteristics of this scholarship in practice; to introduce the theoretical underpinnings of a scholarly approach, pointing to a range of literature, directing readers to a range of perspectives in the literature; to discuss the purpose and value of scholarship in this area; to define and demonstrate scholarly approaches in this context; to define the field of HE teaching and learning, with an international frame of reference, including key debates; to propose strategies for continuing professional development in this discipline; to prompt readers to adopt a strategic approach to their development as teachers; and, to encourage and enable contributions to the scholarship of HE teaching and learning from across the disciplines.

As the field of conflict analysis and resolution continues to grow, scholars and practitioners increasingly recognize that we can learn from one another. Theory must be informed by practice and practice must draw on sound theory. Above and beyond this lies a further recognition: without at least attempting to actually engage and transform entrenched conflicts, our field cannot hope to achieve its potential. We will merely remain in a more diverse, multi-disciplinary ivory tower. This edition breaks new ground in explicitly connecting the Scholarship of Engagement to the work of conflict resolution professionals including those in the academy, those in the field, and those who refuse to choose between the two. The text explores a wide variety of examples of, and thinking on, the Scholarship of Engagement from participatory action research to peace education, and from genocide prevention to community mediation and transitional justice.
