Improve healing throughput as necessary
While it does sound like this was a case of bad tank, there are things you can do to improve healing throughput as necessary.
Adlo when the tank doesn't have a galvanize buff is more healing/time than physick (600 potency vs 400). (crit adlo is 900 total effective potency)
If the previous galvanize is still on the tank, then you risk not getting the full benefit from adlo. Alternating between the two isn't a bad compromise, especially because adlo has a slightly longer cooldown than its cast time.
Adlo is also mana inefficient. To compensate for this, make sure you're using you're using Aetherflow every minute, on cooldown. (there are times and places to save it, but when learning scholar, get into the habit of using it every time you can. If its off cooldown, burn your aetherflow stacks and pop it). Scholars have a ridiculous amount of mp to work with, but also have inefficient healing to match.
Don't be afraid to use your aetherflow, it comes back every minute. Its not uncommon for me to use Adlo+lustrate together, when a tank is taking high damage.
If you run out of aetherflow and the tank is still getting wrecked, make sure to pop off Eos' healing buffs (Illumination first, be in range for the tank to get the healing buff), and rouse+whispering dawn, even if you just use it for the regen on the tank, is still worth using. At this point, if your aetherflow is still going to be a while, and you need more healing than you can do with adlo+physick, use dissipation (eat the fairy, her cooldowns are spent anyway). This gives you more aetherflow, and 30s of 20% more healing. Between 20% bonus healing for illumination, the regen, and 20% more healing from you, sch can single-target heal significantly higher than normal conditions. You cannot sustain this for too long, but it should last for the immediate crisis.
Healing bonuses, like Defiance, Convalescence, Mantra, Fey Illumination, Dissipation, are all multiplicative. That is, they are more effective together than they are individually. With all 5, my 5k crit adloquium turns into a ~12.5k crit adlo (1.2^5 = 2.49). That makes these really strong cooldowns, but you shouldn't need this for simple dungeon pulls. Still, being able to meet and surpass the healing needed to keep even bad tanks alive, is the difference between a good vs amazing scholar, so its good to know how to respond in an emergency.
Get very comfortable with using all the mitigation cooldowns (Fey Covenant, Sacred Soil, Virus, Eye for an Eye, even Shadow Flare helps a little vs most mobs), sch is different from other healers is that we use our cooldowns to help mitigate damage to reduce the required healing.
Amazing things to look forward to in FFXIV Heavensward

ffxiv raid gear but it's not enough to keep raiders around
Yoshida played captain Ahab with gordias. He wanted to hunt his white lucrezia whale for them beating T13 so fast. Yoshi P. and his dev team took a raiding community that had participation rates close to 10%, said "FU I want to stop lucrezia from getting full clears in three weeks" and destroyed the end game with Gordias.

The only possible way an apartment would be suitably grandiose enough to match up with the narrative of the Warrior of Light is if we were literally living within places like Ul'dah's Royal Palace.
