"This book makes a distinct contribution to the field by stressing ownership of growth by the adult learner and the role of the facilitator in creating a fertile environment for growth. It fills an unmet need on the market."
"I was completely engrossed with this book. Husby hit on all the important steps in establishing a staff development program and explains not only the 'how' but also the 'why.'"
“Developed around an unassailable conceptual framework of adult learning theory, self-directed learning, action research, critical reflection, and group learning, Husby pointedly addresses the interests and standards of society; her individualized professional development program provides for professional accountability because individuals’ goals must impact student achievement, and it adheres to professional standards as explicated by the National Staff Development Council.”
"Both practical and research-based, her text provides specific lesson outlines for staff developers to introduce and facilitate action research as a critical form of professional development for adult learners. Husby offers us a way to see our practice with new eyes through inquiry and perhaps grow our teaching through data analysis. She makes a convincing argument that self-directed learning is what our teachers want and need.
