Rx for Inservice Success: Cooperative Efforts Between University and Teacher Center.
Amodeo, Luiza B.; And Others
A description is given of the cooperation between the Las Cruces Teacher Center (New Mexico) and New Mexico State University. The university's college of teacher education and the teacher center are now working together to meet the needs of preservice and inservice teachers. The university has interacted with the teacher center at various preservice and inservice levels. These have included: (1) graduate courses; (2) recertification courses; (3) individual faculty presentations; and (4) center director interaction with preservice undergraduate students from the university. The director of the center has attempted to reach as many undergraduate students as possible. Frequent presentations are made by the teacher center for undergraduates in early childhood classes, elementary and secondary student teaching, and all four levels of the university's cooperative education program. An exchange program with British teacher centers has also been initiated with participation by both teacher center and university faculty. Joint planning efforts are made between the university and the teacher center, and the center director feels free to request and to suggest potential courses or offerings. University faculty are interested in teaching at the center and frequently request to do so. (JD)
