This presentation describes patterns of collaborative reflection in an online forum. Twenty secondary social teachers, who completed a two-week workshop on problem- based history inquiry in the summer of 2003, participated in an online forum during the 2003-2004 academic year. The teachers were asked to post reflections on a regular basis and encouraged to read peers' posting and share experiences. In order to facilitate the reflection process, several prompting questions were provided, and two faculty and three graduate students provided formative feedback on each reflection posting. Data gathered through messages posted on the online forum, along with surveys and interviews indicated that although the online forum was a useful tool for teachers to share experiences and ideas, additional features were needed to promote teachers' collaborative reflection.
