This session will deal with what is loosely within the
method of narrative inquiry. Teachers are often the missing voice in
education. Telling our own stories is a powerful way to conduct or add to
any research because it answers the question, "Why are you asking these
particular questions." Using aspects drawn from feminist standpoint theory,
ways to tell one’s own story in, or as part of another form of, academic
research will be discussed.
