This article reports on the delayed impact of a year-long, collaborative action research seminar on the professional development of a cohort group of teachers. The authors describe the design of the seminar and the guiding principles of the collaborative process. The teacher-researchers reported that, as a result of the seminar and their investigations, they are more competent consumers and producers of research. The effects for individuals ranged from subtle impacts on the ways that they conceived of their professional practices to continuing efforts to produce and disseminate research findings.
