Abstract

The Windows into Teaching and Learning (WiTL) project is a method developed by researchers at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte that allows the facilitation of online clinical experiences for graduate interns during their content area methods course. WiTL was originally developed to address difficulties in securing meaningful clinical placements for interns during online summer coursework. As the project was implemented, practicing classroom teachers who participated experienced some outcomes that were not initially intended. The WiTL process had an impact on the professional growth of the practicing classroom teachers. The results of the study indicate that WiTL encouraged teachers to utilize reflective practice in rethinking their pedagogy and used technology to facilitate professional learning community (PLC) among classroom teachers.
