Abstract


In this article, we review teaching practice supervision methods using Microsoft Teams as a digital, dialogic, and reflective tool in the supervision of the pre-service teachers’ teaching practicum. We applied qualitative thematic analysis to data from conversations and supervision discussions between 40 pre-service teachers and their supervisor on the Microsoft Teams chat channel to investigate pre-service teachers’ experiences of teaching-practice supervision through digital platforms. The dialogical, digital, deep (DDD) pedagogical framework guided the analysis of the data. We found Microsoft Teams enhanced pre-service teachers’ written dialogue, increased peer support, and enabled and deepened collective group dialogue, leading to increased understanding of teaching and learning through analyzing, interpreting, evaluating, producing, and creating knowledge.
