Corporate and Higher Education Collaboration to Improve Teaching: A Case Study.
Bloom, Darrell; Koenig, Pam
This paper explores an innovative approach to funding school improvement programs. It looks at a series of programs initiated by the National College of Education in collaboration with several corporations and foundations in the Chicago metropolitan area. The evolution of the College's participation in these endeavors is reported as well as the strategies used to solicit corporate, institutional, and public school support. Collaborative endeavors are discussed from two perspectives. First, the institution of higher education is examined and it is noted that the involvement of key academic administrators, faculty, and development office personnel is crucial to the success of these projects. The second perspective examined is that of the corporation providing technical assistance and financial support. Important considerations that face corporations before becoming involved in collaborative projects with institutions of higher education are discussed. Case studies are presented of four different school improvement programs currently in operation. (JD)
