The Practitioner Inquiry Series publishes books by practitioner researchers as well as books about practitioner research and its many roles in educational contexts. Practitioner inquiry includes many related genres (e.g., teacher research, action research, participatory action research, self study, the scholarship of teaching and learning, and extended critical essays related to inquiry and practice) and includes writing by many differently-positioned practitioners. Many books in the series blur the boundaries between theory and practice by providing rich insider accounts of the complex work of educational practice as well as how practitioners theorize and understand their work from the inside.
