Abstract: This study describes preliminary results from incorporating digital simulations into four pre-service teacher preparation courses to help develop adaptive expertise in facilitating discussions of controversial issues. Faculty at four teacher preparation programs implemented two modules of Discussion Leader, a digital facilitation practice space. Instructors and used common instructional frameworks and pre-post assessments (N = 31). Initial evidence suggests Discussion Leader helped pre-service teachers develop self-awareness and reflect on their own performance—a crucial step toward developing facilitation expertise.
