About the Author

Stephen Preskill is chair of the Department of Education at Wagner College in New York City. He held the Jane Simmons McKimmon Professorship of Leadership Studies at Peace College in Raleigh, North Carolina. Stephen D. Brookfield is Distinguished University Professor at the University of St. Thomas, in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Preskill and Bookfield are the coauthors of Discussion as a Way of Teaching, second edition, from Jossey-Bass.


"What I like most about this book is the way Preskill and Brookfield model their own ideas about narrative, listening and being open to the contributions of others. They are good story tellers and have the ability to bring the personality and essence of their leaders to the reader. It is both a thought provoking book and a practical guide. It gives models, but urges us to reflect and analyze our own experiences. It is definitely grounded in adult learning principles, and pushes the limits of our current thinking. I will definitely introduce this model, Preskill and Brookfield's ideas, to my doctoral students this fall. How could I not?" - The National Teaching and Learning Forum
