    Abstract

    This paper reports the impact of a collaborative professional experience model on pre-service secondary mathematics teachers' perspectives and practices within a learning community. Nine pre-service teachers made 12 school visits over one year to observe and co-teach problem-solving lessons in two Year 8 classes. They discussed the lesson with the teacher and the university supervisor, and posted reflective comments to an online forum. Data from questionnaires, interviews, and reflections indicate participation in the learning community helped pre-service teachers link theory and practice, learn from each other, and become more reflective.
