Teaching as Learning: An Action Research Approach

Front Cover
Taylor & Francis US, 1993 - Education - 125 pages
In this fascinating and very personal book, Jean McNiff, author of the successful Action Research : Principles and Practice, argues that educational knowledge is created by individual teachers as they attempt to express their own values in their professional lives.
Working with case studies of actual practice, she looks again at the familiar action research paradigm of identifying a problem, imagining, implementing and evaluating a solution and modifying practice in the light of that evaluation. She gives practical advice on how working in this way can aid the professional development of action researcher and practitioner alike. She concludes that the best teaching is done by those who want to learn and who can show others how to be open to their own processes of self development.
