This study aims at describing and interpreting two phenomena of human experience: developing-operating an online course based on the Complexity Theory and reflection on the teaching and learning of the English Language. These phenomena were investigated, from a course entitled Virtual Classroom: English teachers are (in)-formed on the teaching profession, broadcast by the platform TelEduc, from August to December 2009 and involving 18 students of Arts/English, from a public state university, located in Midwestern Brazil. Considering this study was based on the Complex Thinking (MORIN, 2000, 2007, 2008), which assumes that the knowledge, events and phenomena are woven together, I had the concern to build a coherent work based on this new epistemological dimension with a new methodological approach which was also complex. Moreover, I had the task of producing activities, using the cognitive operators of Complexity, since they helped me to put the complex knowledge into practice. So, I resorted to a qualitative methodological orientation, whose object of study is the human experience. This methodological alternative is called Hermeneutic-Phenomenological Approach (FREIRE, 1998, 2007, 2008) and aims at searching for the essence of one or several human experiences through the identification of hermeneutic-phenomenological themes. This methodological orientation uses texts as a comprehension procedure, because they capture lived experiences. Thus, to interpret the two phenomena, in order to come to their themes, the designer, teacher-educator and researchers journal, as well as textual activities produced by the students, using some tools from the TelEduc environment, served as textual records. The contributions of this research to the area of teacher education are enormous, especially because it takes innovative and contemporary methodological and epistemological constructs, which break with the models of teacher training based on the Newtonian-Cartesian paradigm and privilege the homogeneities, the centralities and the lack of difference (GIMENEZ, 2011, p. 52), as well as the bias, the objectivities, predictabilities, the neutralities, the linearities and certainties. On the other hand, from such a perspective, the investigated phenomena were understood from a systemic, dynamic, nonlinear, unpredictable, recursive, hologramatic and dialogical point of view
