There has been a dearth of studies on teacher educators using action research to improve their own practice. This book is the first systematic study of a group of teachers examining and enhancing their own practice through the inquiry process of action research. This book presents a broad overview of a variety of methodologies that can be used to improve teacher preparation and professional development programs. It is a ¿must read¿ book for those educators who are new to the college teaching profession and for those who are aspired to be outstanding and successful lecturers.

David Grossman is Dean of the Faculty of Languages, Arts and Sciences at the Hong Kong Institute of Education. Dr. Ming-Fai HUI is Senior Lecturer in the Department of Curriculum and Instruction at the Hong Kong Institute of Education.
