The Return of Practice to Higher Education: Resolution of a Paradox
Raelin, Joseph A.
Journal of General Education, v56 n1 p57-77 2007

Elsewhere, a "practice turn" has elevated experience as a basis for knowledge. This article shows how practice became detached from theory and how through praxis they can be reintegrated.
