Summary of Proceedings of the Exploratory Conference on Cooperation in Teacher Education Research.
Greene, Myrna L., Ed.
Educators and education researchers from teacher education in western Canada institutions attended a conference to explore possibilities for cooperation in teacher education research. Sponsored by the University of Lethbridge (Alberta), participants included representatives from universities in British Columbia, Victoria, Alberta, Calgary, Regina, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, and Winnipeg. Informal opening statements from participants indicated the status of educational research efforts and the need for collaboration at each university. A presentation by Dr. Vern Dravland of the University of Lethbridge outlined possible options and directions for the future and contained suggested guidelines for further discussion among several groups. Small group discussions and a general discussion on various topics followed, resulting in a list of possible cooperative ventures among the universities. A consensus was reached on the commitment of participants to work toward formal collaborative arrangements for teacher education research. A document was drafted and submitted to the deans of education at the western Canada universities requesting their active support in establishing a database for studies in teacher education to be shared by cooperating agencies at the local and provincial levels.
