Journal or Book Title
As a new faculty member teaching graduate students in student affairs, I am keenly aware that my responsibility is not simply to disseminate knowledge from the field, but to engage students in the process of developing and defining their roles as scholar-practitioners. In designing my course syllabi or planning course learning outcomes, I attempt to answer these questions: How will this information enhance their work as scholars? How will this information enhance their skills as practitioners? Having worked in a variety of administrative, programming, and advising positions within higher education - both in student and academic affairs for almost 20 years - how I would answer these questions? What has influenced my work as a scholar? What has influenced my work as a practitioner?
