Teacher education aims to move students from novice to expert level. In this study, we analysed student’s textual peer feedback on video recordings of their teaching practice. First, the impact of the curriculum and literature on students’ feedback by the network analysis of prominent words. Secondly, the lexical richness and the semantic cohesion of students’ feedback and reflections. Our findings show that students created stronger connections between the prominent words from the literature. The lexical richness and semantic cohesion also increased. This means that students incorporated vocabulary from expert sources and maintained semantic consistency while using the expert vocabulary.
