This ethnographic study explores the nature
of the conversations between two colleagues, a more
experienced and a less experienced university
professor, during the planning sessions, class
meetings, and debriefings of a reading assessment
course. The study describes what happened during
the planning sessions and class debriefings of the
more experienced professor, and how the conversations
between the two colleagues assisted them in further
developing their teaching.
Case study methods (Bogdan & Biklen, 1982;
Merriam, 1988) were used to conduct and analyze
the study. The data included field notes, course
documents, and transcriptions of the audio taped
planning sessions, class meetings, and debriefings.
