Abstract

Douglas Johnston writes: CELA conferences provide an opportunity for scholarly engagement. The conference program provided a rich range of topics and subject matter. Presentations covered the usual spectrum from unfocused thinking and descriptions of class projects, to those that truly met the aspirations of the conference theme. More than ever, we need the development of faculty who can articulate clearly and concisely the elements of Boyer's domains of scholarship: discovery, integration, application, and teaching. It is not enough, however, to rely on the domain label. Let us focus on meeting the criteria for scholarship: goals/questions, context, methods, important results, effective presentation, and self-critique. All university programs prepare their students for practice, not only professional programs such as landscape architecture. We need to feel the obligation to prepare our students for a future practice that in ways we know, but in others cannot anticipate. To do that, we need quality scholarship. Alan Tate is Professor and Head of Landscape Architecture at the University of Manitoba and Conference Reviews Editor for Landscape Journal.
