Recent educational policies are oriented towards the training of teachers for online collaborative work. We size this opportunity to examine the delicate relationship between reflective practice and community of practice. Keeping in mind the professional development of teachers, we stress the interest of developing trainings which support the emergence of communities of practice and raise the awareness about new instructional strategies. We introduce a paradigm which articulates four notions, namely reflection on practice, dialogue in the reflective process, learning community and community of practice. We describe a framework for reflection integrated into a collaborative learning process, its specific media of discourse, scenario and dialogical process. A case study illustrates our approach.
