Abstract

In the CEGEP network project in Quebec, telecollaboration is used to foster professional development among college teachers working in remote areas. The authors would like to discuss the future of telecollaboration with the participants, and share ideas on the most appropriate conceptual and methodological frameworks for studying it, while presenting some of the results of their project. At this roundtable, the authors hope to meet other researchers and teachers who are interested in the practical and theoretical sides of telecollaboration. The next phase of their project is to try to portray teachers’ telecollaboration practices, and to this end, this roundtable will be a forum for both teachers and researchers interested in this topic. Discussions on the most appropriate conceptual and methodological frameworks for analysing professional development telecollaboration cases will follow brief presentations of the issues raised by the CEGEP network project.
