About the Author

PETER JARVIS is professor of continuing education at the University of Surrey, England. He works with a wide range of professionals, including those in business and management, nursing, and all levels of education. Author of fifteen books and editor of nine others, Jarvis has had his work translated into sixteen languages.


"Jarvis has successfully eliminated the mystery and fear of conducting academic research in this easy to read book which encourages educators and others to become practitioner-researchers." (Pade Informer) "Jarvis does a real service by introducing a new vision of research into the current debates over the nature and mission of the academy." (Continuing Higher Education Review) "At last, a window into what it means to 'learn by doing' . . . This is a remarkable book. Jarvis has managed to bridge the worlds of theory and professional practice in a way that will help each better understand the other." (Jon Wergin, professor of educational studies, School of Education, Virginia Commonwealth University) "Peter Jarvis's own extensive biography as scholar and practitioner shows through in this book. His skillful blAnding of theory and practice produces a store of information that can prove useful to professors and practitioners alike, especially when they choose to work together to construct practical knowledge." (John M. Peters, professor, University of Tennessee)
