Abstract:Learning Communities consist of a diverse group of professionals who build on each other’s knowledge and skills to solve complex problems together. However, integrating diverse knowledge remains challenging, so team members must engage in collaborative interactions during so-called activities of team learning (TL) and team reflexivity (TR). The facilitators' behaviour is essential to guide and support this process. Therefore, this study deepens the understanding of the facilitators’ behaviour in supporting interprofessional learning using a mixed-method design. The results indicate firstly that the facilitator initiates more TR activities but the amount of initiation changes towards a more shared responsibility over time. Secondly, the results indicate that the facilitator shows different behaviours during the TL and TR activities and their behaviour changes over time. Last, the interactional sequences showed that the facilitator and the members uses different behaviours in response to each other during the TL and TR activities.
