The “Scientist-Practitioner” Model Related to I-O Psychology
If a development executive is employed at a large communications company, an international communications and technology company. He has completed his PhD in I/O psychology and has been working at this communications company for seven years. Although he did research during his PhD studies, he has not been involved in academics since that time.
My questions are:
1. Can this man be considered a scientist/practitioner?
2. Why is the scientist/practitioner model useful in I/O psychology?
3. How are the scientists and practitioners models distinct be problematic?
4. I’m wondering how the scientist/practitioner model has been demonstrated throughout the history of I/O psychology?
