Part of the Self Study of Teaching and Teacher Education Practices book series (STEP, volume 8)

As we construct this book to share with you and relearn for ourselves what S-STTEP research is and how to do it, we begin with the name itself. To summarize succinctly we define self-study in the words of Hamilton and Pinnegar (1998a) as, the study of one’s self, one’s actions, one’s ideas … It is autobiographical, historical, cultural, and political … it draws on one’s life, but it is more than that. Self-study also involves a thoughtful look at texts read, experiences had, people known and ideas considered. (p. 236)
