Privatization, Illumination, and Validation in Identity-Making within a Teacher Educator Research Collective
This article reports a collective self-study by seven teacher educators at the University of Canterbury, New Zealand. As the authors individually engaged in self-studies of their personal teacher education practices, they also were participating in a group self-study of their collaboration to better understand the effects of their collaborative endeavor on them individually, as well as how their work together affected them collectively. Through the conversations and inevitable comparisons with known others that the authors make and encourage in studies conducted this way, they are encouraged to reflect on their own uniqueness as professional selves. At the same time, they are also reminded of the collective values that they share as a professional community.

This paper argues that recognition of the construction of individual identities can inform innovation with computers in education.
