Course level: Graduate

This five-day experiential residency course engages students in critical discussion and collaboration to explore the integration of theory and practice as a mechanism to guide their professional identity development in the communities they serve. Students reflect on the complex interrelationships between inquiry, knowledge, practice, and theory juxtaposed with the praxis of the scholar-practitioner-leader. Throughout the residency, students develop an increasingly reflexive articulation and demonstration of how their participation in a doctoral program has influenced their growth as scholar-practitioner leaders. Additionally, students develop shared visions for the continuation of their transformation as future leaders who engage with academics and practitioners to promote scholarship for evidenced-based decision-making.
