The relationship the author had as doctoral student to Paul Hager as supervisor is analysed and theorised using three Bakhtinian concepts of dialogism, answerability and ideological becoming. The paper raises the value of dialogic engagement as an emergent relational process. In thesis making, the nature of researching (workplace) practice is not only about delivering the thesis. it is also about the transformative process of becoming a researcher that simultaneously transforms interactions and working relationships among those who are implicated in their own evolving process learning their practice.
