Abstract

We bring together three case studies in computer science and engineering which were launched for the same purpose: to understand what participants – students, high-school teachers, and university teachers – considered themselves to be significant in their pursuit of professional growth and what empowered and disempowered them. All three studies use narrative methods, although in different ways. The studies share two findings: (a) participants were engaged in processes of becoming or being life-long learners, and (b) the importance of community in their narratives.
