In world language teacher education, there are few opportunities that integrate preparing prospective educators for meaningful participation in intercultural dialogues and for deeper understanding of value conflicts.

The recent proliferation of studies on the language of reflection unveiled post-observation conferences (POC) as an essential setting in teachers’ professional development. As the studies on these conferences have mainly focused on pre-service settings, research on in-service context where the peers are the providers of feedback remains limited. In an attempt to address this gap, this study micro-analyzes the video recordings of 14 in-service POC sessions at an English preparatory school with the theoretica...
