Collaboration: A Review, Synthesis, and Analysis of the Literature and Research.
Reed, Arthea J. S.
A discussion of the Teacher Education Center Act in Florida is presented within the framework of historical collaboration between different components united to achieve mutual objectives. The basic problems facing successful organization of teacher centers are seen as threefold: institutions of higher education believe that they hold the primary leadership role because of their historic prominence; teachers believe they should be the primary collaborators because of their practical experience and knowledge; and school administrators feel that their responsiblility for the accountability of what happens means they should have the primary role. This paper reviews and synthesizes the literature dealing with collaboration. Additionally, it explains the development of the collaborative effort in teacher education. The stated purpose of this study is to improve an understanding of collaboration and of the importance of it in the developmental history of teacher education with the aim of assisting in the evaluation of cooperative effort in teacher education centers.
