This self-study explores the author’s mediation as a literacy teacher educator in the context of a professional development undertaking that involved developing and leading an early school years literacy course. The author examines the tensions that arose in the light of her own professional history and explore ways that the tensions led her to reconcile conflicting messages through processes of reframing. This self-study advances knowledge about teacher education in terms of its role in mediating connections between research, policy and practice, identifying some of the tensions that occur in this mediation and illustrating how, as teacher educators, we can use these tensions to reframe our mediation.

This paper reports a self-study of developing an integrated play-based pedagogy in a preservice early childhood teacher education subject about play. It is framed by understandings of play in children's lives and adult learning. The self-study was initially driven by a contradiction between teaching preservice teachers about play through didactic means and learning about play through play. Other tensions subsequently arose in this self-study and required me to reframe my thoughts and actions so I could move forward.
