This study explores the constructs of self and how learning has been influenced over a lifespan. Autoethnographic narrative methods were used to explore key learning experiences using a timeline to trace significant occurrences that influenced learning over a lifespan.
This story telling method is used to illuminate and build historical narratives to challenge and shape past and contemporary western neo-liberal orthodoxies.
