We focus on two broad methodological issues: • What kind of knowledge claims can we make and what might be their status, given the methodology that was employed?

We hope that through its practical detail our description of the development and implementation of the methodology employed in the FDE research project will serve as RESEARCHING TEACHERS’ TAKE-UP 3 a stimulus to further debate on teacher education research in South Africa. We begin with a description and discussion of the research methodology that evolved over the three years of the project. We then describe the kinds of challenges we faced as the research team conceptualised and implemented the research, and reflect on both its strengths and limitations.
