In this article the author is concerned with examining how teacher research can act as a significant form of teacher professional development, drawing on experiences gained over the past few years of working with teachers in the area of teacher research and collaborative inquiry. Two projects, the Innovative Links between Schools and Universities Project for Teacher Professional Development, and the National School Network have contributed to the rethinking of teacher professionalism through the use of teacher research. The author presents some of the issues that have emerged during the course of these projects as they relate to the practice of teacher research as a means for teacher professional development.
