An essential companion for university faculty interested in conducting scholarly inquiry into their classroom teaching, this practical guide presents a formal model for making visible the careful, difficult, and intentional scholarly work entailed in exploring a teaching question.

  • Developing a formal model for structuring the exploration of a classroom inquiry question
  • Providing a practical and useful guide for faculty interested in exploring teaching and learning challenges
