This article deals with the organisation of correction in mobile instructional settings. Five sets of videodata (>250 h) documenting how learners were instructed to fly aeroplanes, drive cars and ride bicycles inreal life traffic were examined to reveal some common features of correction exchanges. Through detailed multimodal analysis of participants’ actions, it is shown how instructors systematically elaborate their corrective instructions to include relevant information about the trouble and remedial action – a practice we refer to as the unpacking of correction. It is proposed that the practice of unpacking the local particulars of corrections (i) provides for the instructional character of the interaction, and (ii) is highly sensitive to the relevant physical and mobile contingencies. These findings contribute to the existing literature on the interactional organisation of correction and mobility, as well as to ongoing work in ethnomethodologyand conversation analysis on teaching and learning as members’ phenomena.
