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

Thus far in this text we have theorized about self-study methodology, except in our momentary PAUSES as we have explored practice, ontology, and context. We have situated ourselves within the realm of qualitative methodologies. At this point, then, we turn toward more practical descriptions of self-study methodology as we ask a series of questions: Once we recognize that we want to engage in self-study, how do we select our data collection strategies? How do we know which strategies might work? What might we use to address our desire to undertake good research? In this chapter we address these questions along with the questions which guide the structure of the chapter.
