Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionpeer-review


This research follows a professional-development that encourages the participating teachers to
integrate technology in their lessons and reflect upon their practice. The research aimed to find out
whether taking part in such a reflection-encouraging PD may demonstrate detectable changes in the
participating teachers' discourse regarding their practice. The commognitive framework enabled us
to identify and track the changes in one participating teacher’s professional-identity. Hence, we
hypothesize that providing an opportunity for reflection in a professionally supportive environment
may lead towards the improvement in a teacher’s professional identity.
