Abstract: The capacity for experienced teachers to solve complex or contentious problems in the workplace is improved when the teacher or school administrator is able to see the problem from the diverse perspectives of all stakeholders and critically reflect on the decision making processes. These skills are particularly important for special education teachers and administrators who must collaborate with parents, specialists, therapists and colleagues to understand and address the educational needs of students with disabilities. This paper applies an online, role play methodology to describe a model for reciprocity, collaborative problem solving and critical reflection in contentious educational contexts. The role play involves ten roles shared with twenty participants who have conditional access to three different virtual sites for dialogue, discussion and reflection. This is a preliminary paper that describes the model of collaborative problem solving that was used in addition to some detai l about the technological structures developed on the LMS (Moodle) to maximize the role play interface with all participants and to personalize the learning experience.
