This paper relates aspects of the research approach to data collection and interpretation adopted in a situation where the participants were professional adult women, keenly aware of the learning environment in which they achieved their qualifications. Their contributions to the body of knowledge thus generated, by written narrative, reflected an innovative use of electronic media and the associated methods of interpretation and analysis via the Overlay Principle.

My early, happy childhood in "the bush" of New South Wales, Australia,where my parents instilled in me a love of learning, preceded formal education in Sydney and a very full life of teaching, marriage, children and university studies. In addition, many years were spent in business, prompting achievement of accountancy qualifications combined with the teaching of law subjects to tertiary students. With a Bachelor of Education, a Masters Honours in Education and a Doctorate of Philosophy, my major interests continue along the path of academic expression combined with business and travel.
