Scholarship as Architecture: Framing and Enhancing Community Engagement

Sandmann, Lorilee R, PhD

Journal of Physical Therapy Education: December 2006 - Volume 20 - Issue 3 - p 80–84

When scholarship acts as the frame, it provides an architecture that enables faculty with community partners to practice community engagement in ways that produce credible scholarship. Community-engaged scholarship has significant structural parallels to traditional scholarship; however, because it is carried out in collaboration with the community, it reflects a wider variety of goals and results. Scholarship holds great promise as an underlying architecture through which physical therapist educators can shape and enhance their clinical and community-engaged work.
