Summary

This study, 'Supporting Teachers' Professional Development: A Comparative Analysis of Work-Located and Work-Related Discussions of Video Recorded Practices', seeks to explore teachers' work-based discussions around video recordings of their own practices. It looks into the different ways in which these discussions develop in a ‘work-located' and face-to-face context as opposed to a ‘work-related' and online context. The video-recorded face-to-face discussions and online email discussions will be analyzed from a multimodal perspective. All participants involved will be interviewed about their learning experiences in the two contexts.
