Partnership across Programs and Schools: Fostering Collaboration in Shared Spaces
Recent reports call for a structural transformation of teacher preparation programs with increased attention to quality field-based learning experiences for pre-service teachers. Ideally, this occurs in the context of robust university-school partnerships. The challenges lie in identifying such school sites and building meaningful, reciprocal relationships, particularly in large Colleges of Education that house a multitude of certification programs. This paper discusses how two programs within a department collaborated across programs to create school partnerships in shared spaces. Reflections on success and challenges, implications for reform efforts, and thoughts for future directions are shared.
