Application: What is it?
Scholarship of Application
"By scholarship of application we mean having professors become what Donald Schön of MIT has called ‘reflective practitioners,’ moving from theory to practice, and from practice back to theory, which in fact makes theory, then, more authentic . . . by making knowledge useful, we mean everything from building better bridges to building better lives, which involves not only the professional schools but the arts and sciences as well." (Boyer, 1996, p. 23).
