Acknowledgements
I would like to thank the following people for their advice, support and contributionsthat enabled this thesis to be written:
The teacher researchers who allowed me to participate in the learning journeywith them and who were so generous, committed and thoughtful in sharing their work and thinking. This thesis is as much a product of their work as it is of mine.
My principal supervisor Maureen Ryan, who was able to provide the right balance of support, encouragement and challenge and who was able to steer metowards important references that had a profound influence on my thinking andanalysis.
My co-supervisors Brenda Cherednichenko and Tony Kruger who gavegenerously of their time and thinking to assist me with a complex methodologyand who also read and discussed each chapter in a way that greatly assisted meto refine early drafts and tease out important themes and issues.
My fellow student Anne Davies who provided invaluable peer support andshared insights that both helped and nurtured me as I seriously began to shapethis thesis.
And finally, my family Bill and Ross for their patience and understanding.
