We theorise aspects of our learning/practice bringing an enactivist theoretical perspective to our research and teaching, making use of the notion of the ‘praxis of living’ (Maturana, 1988, pp. 26-7). We use the methodology of narrative interviewing (Reissman, 2006) to stay with the detail of our experiences (reflecting: MECT1, Brown and Coles, 2012) as mathematics teacher educators, working on a one-year pre-service course for mathematics teachers. We uncover new awarenesses/learning (Marton and Booth, 1997) about our own practices through interviewing each other. We report these both from the interviews and through stories that were written having been provoked by the interviews. Alf illustrates shifts in his thinking from being a teacher to becoming a mathematics teacher educator. Laurinda illustrates her practice/learning during selection interviews for the course.
