Abstract: It is in this context that we aim to present a case study of continuous training for teachers, carried out within a b-learning framework. In this presentation, we shall present and discuss the concepts related to this approach to teacher education. We shall also present the structure of the platform used for collaborative work, characterise the participants in this research and illustrate the kind of activities and tasks that were conducted by approximately forty teachers in two continuous courses for professional development. Finally, we intend to address a number of reflections emerging from the data collected, including: i) the functionality of the platform; ii) the constraint factors that can affect collaborative learning in such an environment; iii) the changes in the role of the teacher as educator; iv) the changes in the role of the teacher as learner; v) the development of new pedagogical interrelations; vi) the complexity of collaborative learning.
