Abstract: We present a single-case analysis of the taking of a stitch within a surgical procedure. All work carried out in the OR of a teaching hospital is held to exacting standards and scrutinized at all points regarding its adequacy. We examine how this kind of assessment is carried out with respect to a particular stitch taken by a surgeon-in-training in the course of a long and complex surgery. Our analysis offers an alternate way of talking about learning, treating it as an occasioned and interactional phenomenon. Learning, by this view, represents a special kind of performance done [1] publicly [2] for assessment and [3] with a displayed orientation to the next-time through. Implications for research in the learning sciences are developed.
