Micro-teaching has been used in teacher education over the years for student teachers to trial use educational theories and to receive comments from lecturers and peers in order to learn about teaching in simulated environments. This study analyzed how collaborative learning occurs in a blended learning design of micro-teaching in a method studies module. The blended learning design involved student teachers trying out teaching with a group of peers. The recorded micro-teaching videos were then uploaded for sharing among the class members on an online video database. The analysis of the flow of comments and feedback on the online platform illustrated the collaborative learning in this computer-supported learning community. The interview results also reflected the effectiveness of the sharing of micro-teaching videos for the social construction of understanding of teaching.
