Discussion: Defining Scholarship
A hallmark of your education at Walden University is your development as a scholar-practitioner. As a doctoral student, you have been actively engaged in scholarly activities that support your growth as a scholar-practitioner. As you continue to develop, implement, and evaluate your EBP assignment, you will be applying scholarship as you translate research into practice. A key element of scholarship is dissemination.
