Abstract: Situated in the field of computer-supported collaborative learning, the aim of this study is to present a multi-dimensional approach for the examination of teacher behavior. Two dimensions were used for coding: focus (what the intervention is aimed at) and means (how the teacher intervenes). Teacher behavior was studied for a period of several weeks. Our results indicate that both focus and means changed as time progressed, and that type of interventions varied between groups. Characterizing teacher behavior as a particular type, as done in other research, is therefore refuted. Conclusions that hold for the whole of the studied period are that number of teacher interventions was related to amount of student activity, and that the teacher focused more on task content than group collaboration. In the discussion suggestions are given for teacher supporting tools.
