A New Dimension to the Teacher Center Concept: A University Partnership With a Community College.
Price, Shelby L.; Baker, John H.
The Teacher Center at Portland Community College was established for several reasons. First, driving between campus and the out-of-town sites for student teacher supervision was too costly for Oregon State University faculty. Secondly, it was thought that the preparation of teachers should include experiences in schools outside a single local area and educational system. It also seemed advantageous to provide a program in an urban and suburban area in order to give veteran teachers in the field more input than they had previously into the training of new teachers, teacher aides, and in-service personnel. School districts located near to the community college center were included in the organizational design. These schools are learning laboratories for teacher aides, paraprofessionals, student teachers, resident teachers and other students participating in education related field experience programs.
