How to present a theory (as a handbook)

The key output of research is a theory or something supporting the building or validation of a theory. A theory, in turn, is knowlege, for example in the form of a model, that lets us predict the future or create reliable output in some form. Scientists usually publish theories for other scientists to review, in journals.

But what about the practitioners that we are creating the theories for in the first place?

In this video I present a way of codifying (presenting) theories as practical pattern handbooks so that practitioners can use these handbooks and apply your theory. This way, we connect science to practice and hopefully help make the world a better place. It also helps to get industry engaged in your work.

An associated (preprint) technical report, soon a journal paper, is available with more information. The slides for the video above are also available.
