Eissa Alansari reports on the implementation of cooperative learning in various continuing education courses within Kuwait University. From interviews with 200 university teachers, the author found that three-quarters believed that implementation had been successful. The paper presents a series of recommendations to improve further the educational standard of the Centre in Kuwait University. This issue contains two short research reports-in-progress, one by Ann Lawless on exploring radical wisdom in Australian higher education, and the other by Tom Short in New Zealand on unlocking the Da Vinci code of human resource development. Four interesting book reviews follow. Can I conclude by encouraging anyone who wants to write to do so, who is undertaking a research project to think about developing it into an article for publication (this is particularly worthwhile if you are doing a higher degree), and who wishes to volunteer to review books to contact one of the editorial team of this Journal? You would be signifi cantly contributing to the development of our profession in doing any of these things, and you would be developing your own skills and confi dence in writing. We would love to hear from you
