Collaboration for Inservice Education: Case Studies.
Pipes, Lana, Ed.
The seven case studies presented in this publication are representative of successful programs for the professional development of practicing teachers. They were selected to give a sampling of the variety in programs underway across the country. Two describe teacher centers jointly operated by a school system and a university; another, a Teacher Corps project involving an R&D laboratory with the university/school district collaboration. Two originated in the staff development offices of public school systems, but differ markedly in their structure: one of these works primarily with a single school site and a single university center toward a specific goal; the other uses the resources of community agencies, area higher education institutions, and individuals for a multitude of discrete offerings. Two programs feature cooperation among several universities; in both of these programs, the roles of teacher organizations, administrator associations, school districts, and state department of education are essential components. The final case study describes the concept of a two-year internship or residency for beginning teachers, how it may be funded, organized, and governed. (Editor/JD)
