This reflective analysis of an online professional development event illustrates in three narratives and a meta-reflection how three practitioners negotiated the conceptual framework, the activity design, and the roles and presence of the two online facilitators. Authors show how they examined their experience and developed some insights into better managing the dynamic tensions of online discussions and reframing their expectations of participants' behaviors.
