XChange Teacher Collaborative Inquiry

When teachers work together using an inquiry process to solve problems of practice, the benefits to students and schools are enormous. In 2009, UCLA Center X launched an ambitious grant program to support collaborative teacher inquiry and has since funded and facilitated 75 Teacher Initiated Inquiry Projects (TIIP) across three cohorts. This issue of the XChange focuses on the research, practice, and policy associated with teacher collaborative inquiry.
