Developing Successful Partnerships through Collaboration: Implementing a Premier Teacher Education Program.
Wheeler, Alan H.; Fanning, Jeanne
The State University of New York College at Fredonia, Center for Educational Studies is initiating new partnerships and linkages with inservice teachers to provide a united front in the preparation of educational personnel, changing the delivery mode of inservice education, developing a mission/philosophy reflecting a sense of purpose, and implementing major curriculum changes that more appropriately address the educational needs of the schools. The Center's Advisory Council is comprised of Center personnel, all-college faculty representation, and the involvement of public school faculty and administration. Five task forces with all-college and public school membership are studying and making recommendations on: (1) curriculum integration; (2) inservice/graduate education; (3) developing collaborative partnerships; (4) selecting, rewarding, and training cooperating teachers; and (5) expanding field experiences. A component for assessment and research in education is also being implemented. This document reports on the activities and progress of all components of the Center's collaborative teacher education program. (JD)
