This paper provides a consideration of ways in which synchronous dialogue can contribute to a program of Web-based professional development. Online chat transcripts were analyzed using a framework for classifying forms of dialogue in a telecommunications environment. Synchronous dialogue behaviors emerging from the analysis were classified into four over-arching categories: Instruction, Inquiry, Conversation and Debate. Portions of transcripts provide a notion of the context in which these behaviors arise. Synchronous dialogue is contrasted with asynchronous communications typically found in online learning environments. Unique aspects of synchronous dialogue center on the dynamic nature of the interaction, which can result in simultaneous strands of dialogue as well as the presence of debate in interchanges.
