In this paper we describe the socio-technical structures of the Inquiry Learning Forum (ILF), a web- based professional development tool designed to support a community of in-service and pre-service mathematics and science teachers creating, sharing, and improving inquiry-based pedagogical practices. The hallmark of this environment is that teachers with a broad range of experience and expertise can come together in an online environment to observe, discuss, and reflect upon pedagogical theory and practice anchored to actual teaching vignettes.
