A PhD student teacher role is relegated to the status of a peripheral/marginal participant. Unlike their teaching peers, they do not have an acknowledged space nor a ‘teaching’ identity but a ubiquitous label of ‘student’. Moreover, their lack of engagement and participation in the pedagogical school activities is justified by the obscurity of their role teacher/student. This ambiguity, lack of identity, blocks them from moving from the comfort zone, precludes from experimenting and hinders in exploiting creative ventures. Therein lies the problem, as Wenger (1998) points out – the lack of space to build the identity and the ‘sense of ownership’.
