Subject(s): communities of practice Dialogues in Methods of Education Action research Modeling in learning Dialogue
Abstract: This article chronicles the experiences of Dialogues in Methods of Education (DIME), a group of school and university faculty. Over the past 22 years, DIME members have studied together how to improve their own teaching practices through research, the sharing of ideas, and mutual support. They have also engaged in critical analysis of the disciplinary and institutional forces shaping their work. The history of DIME shows the importance of accommodating difference as well as mutual support for long-term collaborations.
