This research aims to investigate how corpus literacy & pedagogy is developed among a group of pre-service teacher students who formed an online community of practice (CoP) by completing several learning tasks involving both intra- and inter-group interactions. Both qualitative and quantitative data were collected and analysed, covering both the learning process and outcome of the student teachers. The results show that such a corpus-based training enhanced by an online CoP is effective in providing a good corpus literacy for our pre-service teachers, and allows them to further develop corpus-based knowledge and skills to design appropriate learning and teaching materials. In addition, some interesting findings regarding both the intergroup and intragroup interactions among the online CoP are revealed and discussed. Copyright © 2019 University of Antwerp.
