Current trends from the Knowledge Management community, and particularly, toward learning organizations have been privileging collaborative work. When the considered organization is an academic institution, one might look at teachers as knowledge workers. In such a context, we see Technology Enhanced Workplace Learning as a process accounting for continuous development of teams’ skills. In this paper, we propose a learning environment for Teachers, relying on progressive improvement of Instructional Material, as feedback from classes are collaboratively taken into account. We focus on the environments’ design, founded on basis such as Experience Factory and Learning Objects Metadata.
