Rapid technological development in computer video conferencing and digital video photography over the last decade makes it easier than ever for teacher educators to use the technology in facilitating reflective practice. This paper reports recent developments in the use of multipoint desktop videoconferencing (MDVC) in preservice teaching practice in Singapore. In addition to regular video conferencing, preservice teachers now have opportunities to view their own teaching video clips and receive feedback from their peers and university supervisors. The experience helped enhance professional development of preservice teachers by allowing them to share ideas, experiences and teaching resources in real time with an audience wider than the schools where they taught.
