A teacher plans to provide his students with a research project on aspects of English literature. To complete the project, students will have to be taught how to use the Internet safely, responsibly and ethically. In preparing for the lesson, the teacher sources and adapts a lesson plan, which he subsequently discusses with a colleague. The colleague advises him about his approach to delivering the content. Her advice is informed by what she has observed when previously delivering the lesson. When implementing the lesson, the teacher emphasises the need to follow a sound, agreed process when undertaking research online. The colleague observes the lesson in order to give feedback to the teacher about his implementation of the content.
