This case study, concerning peer coaching for sustainable professional practice, utilised video to enable teachers 'deep learning' during peer coaching sessions. While the use of video is not a new tool for continuing professional development, this research employs a fresh way of using it. Teachers reflected on their learning process by watching video footage filmed during group peer coaching sessions. The study explores how this reflection with peers influenced the teachers' thinking and decision-making. Findings indicated that teacher participants were able to 'see' themselves thinking, becoming more explicitly aware of their peer coaching role and their own professional learning processes. This paper links strongly to the theme of this special, issue advancing that the use of video can enable teachers a unique opportunity to review and reflect on their positioning in their professional learning. The research recommends ongoing exploration of practices that afford teachers opportunities to develop metacognitive awareness and an agentic role in their own learning
