The focus of this study was to examine how candidates experienced the online field component, which was consistently structured for both methods courses. The findings reveal that a multitude of themes emerged: shared viewing that enhanced field experiences by making them more meaningful and relevant, created opportunities for social learning and reflection, and served as a bridge between classroom learning and experiences in the field.
