In this paper, we focus on the concept of reflective competence development which comprises the aim to promote professional competence during teacher education. We present the didactical use of collaborative podcasts to improve student teachers’ professional vision of classroom management: Students are seen as knowledge creators where selfcreated podcasts support the promotion of deeper learning. With this approach, we pursue the question of whether the learning environment, in which student teachers produce collaborative podcasts in pairs of two, supports them in acquiring professional vision and leads to a change in beliefs. We present results of a study in a pre-post control group design (NEG = 242; NCG = 180) while the experimental group produces podcasts in contrast to the control group. A preliminary study suggests that professional vision can be enhanced through the production of collaborative podcasts compared to writing blogs. Additionally, we want to analyse the change in beliefs via podcasting.
