Cooperative Approaches to Teacher Education: The State of the Art.
Olsen, Hans C.
This paper begins with a historical survey of cooperative arrangements in teacher education. It explains how the trend toward joint ventures in teacher education began in the late 1950s and early 1960s, and how, since 1968, a variety of arrangements have been developed to accommodate the need to work together. Partnership is defined as regularized collaboration wherein schools and colleges, with related institutions, agencies, and organizations, are professional equals and are jointly responsible and accountable for educating teachers. Eight elements in the rationale for cooperation and partnership are listed and the following five common forms of partnership are described: (a) internship, (b) clinical teaching center, (c) professional development center, (d) regional council, and (e) state level partnerships. Promising developments in the area of cooperation and partnership are also listed. (PB)
