Response to Patrick Love's "Informal Theory": A Rejoinder
Evans, Nancy J.; Guido, Florence M.
Journal of College Student Development, v53 n2 p192-200 Mar-Apr 2012
This rejoinder to Patrick Love's article, "Informal Theory: The Ignored Link in Theory-to-Practice," which appears earlier in this issue of the "Journal of College Student Development", was written at the invitation of the Editor. In the critique, we point out the weaknesses of many of Love's arguments and propositions. We provide an alternative point of view regarding application of theory in practice and encourage further discourse on the definition and role of informal theory in student affairs practice.
