Teacher Preparation Consortiums: The Theoretical Base.
Dewell, John
For many years most colleges of education and the majority of school systems have held the belief that the preparation of teachers has been the responsibility of teachers colleges. However, we can no longer afford the belief that it is the sole prerogative of the university to prepare teachers. Both universities and schools must see each other as teacher educators. One approach to assuming this new role and responsibility for the education of teachers will be through the development of a consortium approach. Among the most significant aspects of the philosophical basis for a consortium approach are the following: (a) parity through shared decision making in regard to the development and implementation of teacher education programs; (b) total integration of campus and field experiences in teacher education; (c) integration of teacher education programs at the preservice and inservice level; and (d) jointly appointed leadership through a coordinator who serves as a catalyst between the partners in the consortium.
