dc.description.abstract I work as a Resource Teacher Learning and Behaviour (RTLB): a teacher in New Zealand who assists schools with children with special education needs. Using Michel Foucault's suggestion for writing genealogies, I aim in this thesis to shed some light on how I came to think, act and think of myself as an RTLB. In the course of my enquiry, I engage with several dimensions of the RTLB initiative together with my own experiences: the political rationalities and practices that created the work of the RTLB, the knowledge that gave the work intelligibility and credibility and the techniques in the RTLB training programme that enabled the trainees to be competent in and committed to the work. Reckoned together, the interpretations offered here - the RTLB as a project of govern mentality, an effect of discursive formations and both a disciplined and self-disciplined individual - give a sense of the complexity and inventiveness of ideas and activities through which the RTLB emerged in education. The significance of this view is that we can open up new ways of understanding ourselves as workers in education: how we are capacitated to think and behave in certain ways and who we think we are. en
