Les enjeux du e-learning « communautique » en formation continue d’enseignants

Abstract : The research that forms the subject of this thesis interrogates the contribution made by so-called e-learning spaces in the continuous training of teachers. More specifically, the research investigates the effects of ‘situated’ digital spaces and environments, known as virtual communities, on ways of living, practising and enhancing one’s training as well as embarking on a new professional work situation. Particular attention is paid to the use of situated digital technology within “interstitial spaces” where formal and informal modes of learning interact with one another. The conceptual and theoretical framework, taken from the ethnological branch of the sociology of uses, focuses on the concepts of community of practice and community-based practices. That framework sees the uses of digital technology as constituting unique approaches and everyday inventions based on these spaces and depending on the various elements (or logics) that facilitate or hinder the use of them. Distinct sources of data are cross-referenced within the framework of a research monograph, leading onto a study of two online spaces (one made available by the training organisation and the other using electronic messaging), also carrying out comprehensive interviews and analysing the institutional context. The results suggest the emergence of interstitial spaces which build upon forms of electronic sociability. These spaces are located at a midway point between the practices of training institutions and every day personal or group-based practices. The contributions of this research are in its establishment of a conceptual and methodological framework, as well as in the achievement of a greater understanding of the role of informal learning and digital sociability within the contexts of digital technology use and continuous teacher training.
