Formatted Abstract/Summary
Self-study? To be honest I had never heard of self-study until a few years back when Alan Ovens described to me the focus of the Castle conference he attended. My discursive circles are clearly limited. Anyway, when Alan asked me if I would contribute a chapter to this collection along the lines of ‘what self-study might offer the field of PE?’, I accepted the offer in part because I wanted to find out about this ‘thing’ for myself.

I have subsequently learnt that self-studies take a teacher-as-learner stance and focus on the teaching and learning process as experienced by the participants themselves...

...I have a long history of thinking and working with some of the ideas that seem central to self-study. So why had I not heard of it? Why had it not crossed my field of vision?

What I shall do in this chapter is to discuss some issues of interest with respect to my reading of self-study and then turn attention to reflection as the zeitgeist of self-study. I will finally offer some observations regarding the contributions that self-study might make to the field of physical education.
