Abstract

At the 1987 POD meeting, Pat Cross challenged us to discover what could be learned by encouraging faculty to become researchers in their own classrooms, answering their own questions empirically, whether through formal or informal investigations. Classroom research is not new to POD members as previous editions of this volume attest. In characteristic POD fashion, several of our members stepped up their efforts in response to Cross's challenge. The results of their inquiries are presented here.
