    This paper presents the cooperative analysis by a lecturer and an academic
    development practitioner of a reflective journal dialogue over the 12 weeks of
    teaching a postgraduate course. Through a retrospective analysis of the journal
    the present paper explores the following issues: the framing of an inquiry; the
    personal–professional nexus; and tensions in professional academic practice.
    These issues encompass educational dilemmas for both the lecturer and the academic
    development practitioner in the areas of assessment, judgement, evidence,
    accountability, responsibility, authority and professionalism.
