What is a scholar-practitioner
Walden University’s (2014) goal is to help students become scholar-practitioners by challenging them to integrate scholarly research with their own expertise as skilled practitioners in their fields. In other words, research what you do in your field of work or industry by creating improvements in your field or positive social change. My field of study is social media, hence the podcast. I want to improve student retention rates.
What is Positive Social Change
Walden University (2014) defines positive social change as a commitment to improving the human and social condition by creating and applying ideas to promote the development of individuals, communities, and organizations, as well as society as a whole. I am committed to changing social conditions in graduate studies either online or traditional by bridging the gap between brick-and-mortar and click-and-mortar.
