This case study investigates the role of agency in the development of two students’ expertise during their participation in the year-long KOO-KIT program (Language Technology for Language Teachers) for pre-service language teachers at the Centre for Applied Language Studies of the University of Jyväskylä in the 2000s. The curriculum of the program was organized around project-based learning, with theoretical and pedagogical lessons and hands-on technology courses alternating with practical team work in web-based design. The data consist of the teachers’ observations and narrative assessments of the students’ performance, and the students’ self-reports during the one-year course. The findings show that the development of the students’ expertise was highly dynamic, situated and closely linked to the quality of agency they were able to construct with other participants and their team mates, in particular. Finally, the implications of the findings for the execution and development of such programs for pre-service language teachers will be discussed. ...
