Patchwork E-Dialogues in the professional development of new teachers
MetadataShow full item record
AbstractIn this chapter the authors contend that the encouragement of reflective writing within professional learning programmes is not new. They suggest that electronic technologies, however, afford exciting opportunities to develop this practice to support participative and collaborative learning beyond barriers of time and place. This chapter explores the value of asynchronous dialogue in creating and sustaining communities of practice, with particular emphasis on the role of the e-mentor.
