Abstract
The purpose of this study was to examine the use of audio computer conferences on the process of guiding reflection among student teachers during an eight-week student teaching experience. After specific lessons that took place during the final eight weeks of their student teaching placement, each of the two student teachers conferenced with their university supervisor via the audio computer conferencing tool. The student teacher's comments were digitally recorded and analyzed. The Reflective Framework for Teaching in Physical Education (Tsangaridou & O'Sullivan, 1994) was used to describe the focus of the student teachers reflection. Both student teachers and the university supervisor then completed a follow-up interview with the researcher. Data collected through the follow-up interviews were analyzed using inductive thematic content analysis techniques. Content analysis provided insights into student teachers' and the university supervisor's views regarding the value of audio computer conferences in guiding reflection during an eight-week student teaching experience.
