Abstract

Problem
There is a continued, well documented disconnect between HRD scholars and practitioners. Specifically, the ‘Implications for HRD Practice’ section in academic articles is often lacking in relevance and meaning. This is harmful for both academia and practice, but especially for the well-being of learners.

Solution
This essay focusses on how to write a meaningful ‘Implications for HRD Practice’ section and suggests five areas to consider: why writing for practice is important; understand who practice is; relate to practitioners’ knowledge; provide evidence-based suggestions and finally, connect with practice.

Stakeholders
HRD scholars who are committed to write for, and connect with, practice.
