A "Funny" Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum

Journal of Adolescent & Adult Literacy Volume 46, Number 5, ISSN 1081-3004


Describes how a teacher educator uses a Web-based discussion board to promote reflection, encourage engagement, and develop collegiality in preservice teachers. Investigates the effects that a discussion board (forum) created on a website would have on the discourse and reflection of preservice teachers. Considers how the discussion board would be viewed as professional dialogue, which facilitates reflection about teaching. (SG)
