Collaborative Governance in a Preservice/Inservice Center.
Koll, Patricia J.; Herzog, Barbara J.
A description is given of a Preservice/Inservice Center, collaboratively developed by a public school system and a university. The primary purposes of the Center were the following: (1) clustering student teachers to facilitate economy of supervision; (2) implementing an inservice design in which experienced teachers shared the supervision of student teachers with cooperating teachers and university supervisors; and (3) measuring the Center's impact on motivational patterns of inservice teachers. While there appeared to be no significant increase in the intrinsic motivation levels of the inservice teachers who participated, it was concluded that combining preservice with inservice operations tends to provide some motivational impetus for growth for all participants. It was also concluded that peer inservice, in which teachers share and provide mutual assistance to each other, tends to be more effective than using resource persons external to the staff. (JD)
