Abstract: A collaborative partnership between the instructor and students has potential to transform education from the instructor-directed to student-centered learning. However, relevant inquiry indicated conceptual, practical, and methodological gaps on theory, practice, and research of the collaborative partnership. This study aims to better understand the collaborative partnership during actual teaching and learning processes. Using content analysis, we examined the instructor-student collaborative partnership¬† from participation moves perspective in an online course. Results show that the instructor and students keep mutual interactions to construct knowledge; they maintain communications to design and implement online discussions; and they take joint actions to form a social, supportive learning environment. More importantly, a synergistic collaborative partnership was initially developed by the instructor and students. Based on the results, we provided implications to advance practices of the instructor-student collaborative partnership in online learning.
