Ernest T. Stringer

After an early career as a primary teacher and school principal, Ernie was a lecturer in education at Curtin University of Technology, in Western Australia. From the mid-1980s, based at Curtin’s Centre for Aboriginal Studies, he worked collaboratively with Aboriginal staff and community people to develop a wide variety of innovative and highly successful education and community development programs and services. His work with government departments, community-based agencies, business corporations, and local governments assisted them to work more effectively with Aboriginal people. In recent years, as visiting professor at the University of New Mexico and Texas A&M University and as visiting scholar at Cornell University, he taught research methods courses and/or engaged in projects with African American and Hispanic community and neighborhood groups. As a UNICEF consultant, he recently engaged in a major project to increase parent participation in schools in East Timor. He is author of Action Research (Sage, 2007), Action Research in Education (Pearson, 2008), Action Research in Health (with Bill Genat; Pearson, 2004), and Action Research in Human Services (with Rosalie Dwyer; Pearson, 2005). Until recently, he was a member of the editorial board of the Action Research Journal and past president of the Action Learning, Action Research Association (ALARA).

Shelia C. Baldwin

Shelia C. Baldwin’s education career spans 27 years, with seventeen years in public school and ten in higher education. As a high school teacher of English, Reading and ESL, she taught diverse students who were often struggling and disengaged, which inspired her to eventually pursue her Ph.D. Her early work in action research with high school students to study the cultural diversity in their environment was transformational in her perception of classroom life. Her interest, promoting collaboration between teachers and students in the exploration and implementation of alternative instructional approaches, has been a focal point in her continuing work and research as a teacher educator. She has examined her own classes to learn more about teacher candidates’ developing theories about teaching, students, and learning environments. She has developed and supervised service learning field experiences in urban settings for undergraduate and graduate teacher candidates in content literacy courses to provide them with autonomous experiences in diverse settings. Her integration of action research processes introduces the concept of teacher as researcher and guides them toward critical reflection on their experiences that contribute toward their developing theories. She has developed a Master’s level action research course for both initial certification candidates and practitioners.
