Advances in Research on Teaching
Featuring the work of Cindy L. Clarke and Derek A. Hutchinson, this volume explores experiences of narrative inquiry in order to make sense of research, identities, and the response community we have created through this process. Experts in the field bring together thinking and experiences in the current educational landscape to better understand the ways researchers have shaped and been shaped by their work. The process of collaboration on this volume has provided a deeper understanding of some of the ways in which narrative inquirers are able to establish and sustain relationships over time and distance. Narrative inquiry is inherently relational and this book deepens understanding regarding the ways in which academics working together enables, enhances, and animates individual research. The methodological approaches used are rooted in this relational ontology. Artistic methods that engage metaphor such as poetry and story are utilized in order to attend to the complexities of lives and the nuances of experience.  
Through this unique approach, this volume addresses the benefits of Researchers emphasizing relationships in their work and will prove an invaluable contribution for researchers and leaders in the field of Education and Teaching.
