This paper describes the three iterations of an innovative cross institutional initiative within teacher education. Through an international project pre-service teachers, in-service teachers and teacher educators engaged in a rich exploration of educational topics such as inclusivity and information and communication technology integration. The goal of this learning experience was to promote higher order thinking and collaboration while embedding and fostering authentic dialogue between and among pre-service teachers and experts. Siemens' (2005) five stage learning development cycle has provided a framework for analysis of the three iterations of this online international collaborative project.
