(2) Which group of teacher educators should be coordinating student teaching? (3) What is the appropriate number of student teachers for a full faculty load? (4) What should be the minimum training and background for university supervisors? (5) How can part-time supervisors interface effectively with full-time faculty? (6) What is the most effective way of developing expertise in specific areas of teacher education? (7) How can faculty members develop a model of structured field experiences with effective supervision? (8) What does research say about the impact of field experiences upon the future success of teacher candidates? (9) What criteria should be used when selecting schools and teachers for placement purposes? and (10) In what ways can university supervisors provide inservice to cooperating teachers? (JD)
