This book captures the excitement - and the difficulties - of self-study of teacher education practices, placing it at the forefront of approaches to practitioner inquiry. It offers insight into the relationship between teaching about teaching and learning about teaching that emerged through the author's own self-study project. The book illustrates how tensions can act as a means for both analysing practice and articulating the professional knowledge that comprises a pedagogy of teacher education.

Framed in terms of teaching tensions based on Berry's analysis of her data, this book is is not only interesting and insightful but also offers a model for the direction of self-study.
