About the Author:

Viviane is a Distinguished Professor in the Faculty of Education and Social Work at the University of Auckland, New Zealand and Academic Director of its Centre for Educational Leadership.

She has received numerous awards from national and international professional and academic organisations including the Australian Council for Educational Leaders, the New Zealand Secondary Principals Association and the US-based University Council on Educational Administration. In 2011, she was made a Fellow of the American Educational Research Association for sustained excellence in educational research.  In 2016 the Royal Society of New Zealand awarded her the Mason Durie Medal for her international contributions to educational leadership research and practice. She currently leads a research and development programme on the leadership knowledge and skills involved in school improvement.

Mei Kuin Lai completed her doctorate at the University of Auckland and has since worked as an education con­sultant to support practitioners (teachers, principals, administrators) and Ministry of Education officials as they develop inquiry as part of their daily lives. Her cur­rent role at the Faculty of Education at the University of Auckland involves bringing the research and practice worlds together by supporting practitioners and educa­tion consultants in embedding inquiry into their current roles and by developing collaborative researcher-practitioner projects that improve teaching and learning. She has had extensive experience in training prac­titioners, particularly those involved in Ministry of Education School Improvement Initiatives, to effectively analyze and use data on student learning to improve school practices. Her work encompasses a variety of school settings across New Zealand, from multicultural urban settings to small rural communities. She is currently in charge of developing a train­ing program for education consultants (School Support Services Facilitators) at the Faculty of Education to develop inquiry as part of their roles.
Review:
"I plan to use this book with district administrators, building administrators, and building staff. All would find it an excellent tool for bringing about change in their organizations. It is infinitely readable, meaningful, and very useful." Author: Linda L. Elman, Director, Research & Evaluation Published On: 2005-02-24

"The material on the research process and the examples are terrific. Steps are clearly spelled out and practical suggestions hit the major problems teachers encounter in attempting research for the first time." Author: Mildred Murray-Ward, Assistant Provost for Assessment/Professor of Education Published On: 2005-02-25

"This is not a theoretical book, but a hands-on resource that shows school leaders how to use action research to solve problems. (It) is a perfect guide for anyone attempting research. I found it easy to read and easy to understand." Author: Dr. Rose Weiss, Adjunct Lecturer Published On: 2005-02-25

"(With) more schools...operating as "learning communities," this is an excellent tool for schools conducting action research in their own settings. I also feel this text would be ideal for graduate students enrolled in advanced level courses in program evaluation, teacher research, and curriculum assessment. The...book is easy to read, has lots of practical advice and examples, and should appeal to the seasoned as well as the novice researcher." Author: Roxana M. Della Vecchia, Ph.D., Professor/Assistant Dean Published On: 2005-03-01

"This book makes a new contribution to the literature on educational change  (and) describes exciting and powerful ways for educators to plan for changes in school management and classroom practices." Author: Marie Clay, Professor Emeritus Published On: 2005-05-13

"Drawing on principles of organizational learning and methods of practitioner research, Viviane Robinson’s Problem-Based Methodology is the result of many years of work with principals and teachers. This book is theoretically sophisticated, yet provides practical advice for implementing the method." Author: Gary Anderson, Professor, Administration Leadership and Technology Published On: 2005-05-25

"Advisors with a passion for improving student learning and achievement will find that they have much in common with Robinson and lai. These authors are ardent about the use of problem-based methodology (PBM) by teachers and school leaders to investigate, examine, and test their practices and implicit theories. Those interested in implementing PBM will find that the book gives precise instruction, including outlines, details, and summaries supported by real examples of success." Author: NACADA Journal, Spring 2007 Published On: 2007-02-20
