Teaching, Learning and Living : Joining Practice and Research Paperback / softback


By tracing the development of Ann Lieberman's commitment to exploring the complex, entwined nature of teaching, learning and living, this book reflects on how research in teacher leadership and development has progressed and changed over the last fifty years.

This personal account highlights Lieberman's learning as she engaged in research to build collaborative ways of working.

Portraying the fight for teacher participation in research studies about teaching, schooling and teacher improvement so that the complexity of their lives would be represented, and writing about the consideration of teacher's work in any efforts for school improvement, the book discusses the initial collaboration between researchers and teachers.

It then proceeds to outline a number of research projects that document the changing relationship of research and teaching and offers guidance on some of the most important and successful programs and strategies in the field.

It questions issues such as how to create a culture in the school that is supportive of teachers, and how research can best assist teachers to improve their work. Teaching, Learning and Living is a personal, historical and professional look at the growth in knowledge that began to change the views of research and teaching and is a must-read for anyone interested in the development of teacher education.
