Wolstenholme, Carol
Support for Learning, v23 n4 p208-211 Nov 2008
This article describes the experiences of a student who undertakes a period of intensive research for a doctorate whilst still being employed as a teacher working with children with special educational needs. Carol Wolstenholme gives an "insider glimpse" into the challenges and opportunities presented to her as a teacher-researcher and offers readers a personalised reflection on both her chosen research topic and the process of obtaining an advanced qualification in special educational needs. (Contains 1 figure.)
