AbstractExcerpt: This edited volume from Hong Kong provides a welcome answer to a fundamental question in the scholarship of teaching and learning: can knowledge emerging from inquiry in particular classrooms and programs be of interest or use to faculty teaching elsewhere? Can it travel? And if so, how far? The air distance from Hong Kong to the San Francisco Bay area, where I am writing this review, is approximately 6,900 statute miles. But these essays, while retaining the specificity of their setting, cross national, cultural, and institutional boundaries with ease.
