Description

As an approach to educational research self-study generates and makes public the knowledge of teaching and learning about teaching (Loughran, 2004). It supports an interplay between practice and research which has the potential to empower educators to produce and use evidence to inform practice. For teachers and teacher educators engaging in self-study it is an empowering way of examining and learning about practice focusing both on teaching, and pupils’ and students’ learning.
