Abstract [en]

An important element in the professional development of student teachers in most European countries is their progression towards becoming reflective practitioners - reflecting on and in practice (Schön, 1987) - and this can be evidenced in both oral and written forms of assessment. These two evaluative processes - oral feedback (for example in seminars) and written reflections (for example in reflective journals or assignments) are seen as different modes; some students who do not perform well in writing might be better in oral discussions, and vice-versa. A key difference in terms of how these two modes are performed is that while oral discussion is generally interactional, written assignments are typically completed in solitude. Thus students who prefer written mode do not get the same feedback as in a discussion, while those who prefer discussion may struggle with the lone nature of the written form. In this paper we compare outcomes of student teachers use of both oral classroom and written online-forum discussions for reflections on course literature, with the aim of examining each mode in facilitating reflective practice. Initial findings indicate that both modes have benefits and drawbacks. Further analysis which explores the interaction between modal preference and modal presentation, and the implications for online peer-collaboration, are discussed
