Case Study of a Research Intervention: The University of Utah's Collaborative Approach.
A report is presented on the progress of the Applying Research to Teacher Education (ARTE) Research Utilization in Elementary Teacher Education (RUETE) study. The purpose of the study is to develop preservice instruction incorporating current research findings on effective instruction and effective schools and to assess the impact of the preservice instruction. The report focuses on the first year of the study and the strategies developed for effecting preservice teacher education with the research findings on effective instruction and preliminary assessment of those strategies. The initial research intervention at the University of Utah is described with comprehensive data on the methodology and findings, as well as plans for replication. The collaborative nature of the research intervention promoted a link among an external research and development agency, a teacher preparation program, and a public school system. A discussion is offered on the implications for teacher education in such a collaborative effort with parity for varied professional constituencies. It is suggested that while such a process is successful in meeting the goals of decision-making and designing of preservice instruction, it may not be feasible in other settings because of time and cost constraints.
