College-School Collaborative Activities Report.
Maryland State Higher Education Commission, Annapolis.
This report inventories academic and administrative projects which are collaborative ventures between higher education institutions and elementary and secondary schools in Maryland. Fourteen community colleges, 9 public four-year campuses, 2 of the University System of Maryland extension services, and 16 independent institutions (including all of the state-aided campuses) are included. The collaborations have been grouped into six categories. Professional development schools are collaboratively planned for the academic and clinical preparation of teacher candidates and continuous professional development of higher education faculty. Field work includes activities with elementary and secondary schools such as tutoring, student internships, mentoring programs, off-site courses, and community service. Early intervention programs work with public schools to provide early study programs such as dual enrollment and early intervention programs for middle and high school students. Continuing education and teacher training programs work with local education agencies to ensure that secondary school teachers have adequate opportunities for professional development. Career connections/tech prep programs help prepare high school students for the increasing demands of the job market. Distance learning and technology projects include integrating the use of technology into professional development, computer aided instruction, and courses offered for both faculty and students at remote locations. A summary table shows activity types at each institution. (BF)
