The Enquiring University Teacher is an engaging account of an approach to professional development in which one's own teaching is an exiting field of enquiry. It emphasizes the intrinsic interest of learning about university teaching with colleagues who bring their insights from different subject backgrounds and thereby provide a richer understanding of teaching and the learning processes. The book explores the nature of the university teacher's enquiry' a form of professional learning which is both collaborative and personally reflective. It involves questioning personal and intellectual values and placing these at the center of university teaching. The book is deeply thoughtful yet accessible to academics from all disciplines who may have no specialist educational background. While it is suitable from all disciplines who may have no specialist educational background. While it is suitable for the relatively new, as well as the more experienced university teacher, it encompasses a view of teaching and learning that challenges many common conceptions about university teaching and its relationship to disciplinary research.
