Inquiry, Knowledge, and Practice

by Susan L. Lytle & Marilyn Cochran-Smith — 1994

In this chapter we propose a theoretical framework for teacher research—a framework that has evolved from the dialectic of university-based research, teaching, and teacher education over a relatively long period of time. Our framework centers around the questions that are. made visible when the boundaries of research and practice are blurred: questions about the definition and types of teacher research, the status of teacher research as a form of research on teaching, the nature and function of the knowledge that is created when teachers do research, and the implications of teacher research for the construction of a knowledge base, for teacher education and professional development, and for the politics of school and university relationships.
