He received his BA from DePauw University and both MAEd and PhD from Washington University. Dr. Kottkamp has coauthored five books, the latest being, Reflective Practice for Educators: Professional Development to Improve Student Learning (2nd Edition) with Karen F. Osterman. His chapter with Edith A. Rusch, The Landscape of Scholarship on the Education of School Leaders, 1985–2006, is forthcoming in the Handbook of Research on Leadership Preparation. He maintains a keen interest in the continuing development of the Let Me Learn Process® and in researching its processes and effects.
