Drawing upon diverse and specific examples of self-study, described here by the practitioners themselves, this unique book formulates a methodological framework for self-study in education.
This collection brings together a diverse and international range of self-studies carried out in teacher education, each of which has a different perspective to offer on issues of method and methodology, including:
* memory work
* fictional practice
* collaborative autobiography
* image-based approaches.
Such ethical issues likely to arise from self-study as informed consent, self-disclosure and crises of representation are also explored with depth and clarity.
As method takes centre stage in educational and social scientific research, and self-study becomes a key tool for research, training, practice and professional development in education, Just Who Do We Think We Are? provides an invaluable resource for anyone undertaking this form of practitioner research.
