Many instruments are being developed within the international TPACK community. This roundtable session would serve as an opportunity to begin the dialogue necessary to the creation of an instrument that pulls together lessons learned from previous research and assessment design principles. We will focus specifically on an observation instrument. It is hoped that by bringing TPACK researchers together during an active roundtable working session, and by using examples of current observation instruments the development of an internationally useful observation instrument can begin.
