Some of us...our/their
Some of us did our/their teaching practice in rural areas.
Can both our and their be used in this sentence? When should we use one instead of the other?
Thank you in advance.
Re: Some of us...our/their
I think a sentence such as the following is possible, if clumsy:

The first 'some of us' includes the speaker; the second does not.
As I said, it's clumsy. Alternatives would be:
2. Some of us did our TP in rural areas, and some of us did theirs in the city.
3. Some of us did our TP in rural areas, and some in the city.
#3 does not tell us in which group the speaker was. Some people would definitely prefer 'their' in this sentence.
