Two kinds of studies are brought together in this collection, laying emphasis to either the transforming institution or the transforming individual as the basis for achieving excellence in education. The 13 contributors teach education in the US and Canada: Ferrari, who contributes two essays and co-authors a third, is at the U. of Toronto. Among the topics are theory of academic self-regulation, the influence of cultural context, the overriding importance of practice versus innate ability to learn, theories of expert knowledge, and techniques of presenting evidence in the emergence of neurosurgery.
