Abstract: In this study, a group of 22 vocational school teachers wrote weekly reflections in an online learning environment after attending a lesson. They also read the reflections written by others and gave comments. The purpose of this study was to find out how they reflected collaboratively in the online learning environment and what they learned from the collaborative reflection process. Results show that they could reflect on the lesson content and link it to their teaching practice. Also, their peers could get additional perspectives, negotiate meaning, and learn how to reflect better from the reflection shared. Furthermore, they could also gain additional knowledge and emotional support from their peers’ comments. This paper describes the design of the study, and the themes that emerged from the reflection, comments, and responses. Benefits of writing collaborative reflection with peers in an online learning environment and issues involved in the study are discussed.
