This webcast accompanies the publication of Advances in Developing Human Resources 11(4), and is presented by the editors of that issue. It explores the relationship between HRD research and practice, and the pivotal role of HRD scholar-practitioners in addressing the research-practice gap.
The session covers: current knowledge about the link between research and practice in HRD; different types of HRD practitioners; a definition of the HRD scholar-practitioner; HRD scholar-practitioner competencies; and implications for HRD educators, researchers, and practitioners. Throughout the webcast, the presenters explore the challenges of the role of the scholar-practitioner and offer recommendations for improving HRD practice through the application of HRD research.
