Partnerships in Teacher Education. Report of the Working Party on Partnerships in Teacher Education.
Queensland Board of Teacher Registration, Toowong (Australia).
In response to current interest in new collaborative partnerships between universities and schools to promote teacher education, the Queensland, Australia, Board of Teacher Registration hosted a two-stage summit in 1995. One outcome of the summit was the establishment of a Working Party on Partnerships in Teacher Education under the auspices of the Board of Teacher Registration to explore existing partnerships and develop a framework for the operation of partnerships. This report presents the outcomes of the effort. Chapter 1, "Introduction," outlines the processes used by the Working Party. Chapter 2, "Building a Partnership," focuses on the key elements of successful partnerships (collaboration, commitment, planning, management, evaluation, communication, shared goals, and active participation) as well as barriers to successful partnerships. Chapter 3, "Partnership Case Studies," describes successful partnerships (partnerships for practical experience in teacher education, teacher education internships as partnerships, partnerships in preservice education, teacher professional development partnerships, partnerships for teacher research, and partnerships for school and curriculum reform). Chapter 4, "Partnership Proforma," presents a proforma to be used with the rest of the information in the report to help groups begin discussions or work on documents. Four appendixes offer membership of the Working Party on Partnerships in Teacher Education, the Working Party's terms of reference, a survey questionnaire, and acknowledgements and contact details for the case studies.
