Walther-Thomas, Chriss; Korinek, Lori
This final report describes the activities, accomplishments, and outcomes of a three-year project, Preparing Advanced Collaborative Teams, of the College of William and Mary (Virginia) to train education professionals to plan, deliver, and evaluate programs for students with disabilities in inclusive settings. The project incorporated four key features: (1) a program design stressing interdisciplinary collaboration; (2) systematic development of competencies for both direct and indirect service delivery; (3) redefinition of a school-based service delivery model for students with disabilities; and (4) an induction program to support the resource/collaborating teachers in their new roles. A total of 38 master's degree students, 34 building-level administrators, and 38 colleague teachers participated in project activities. The report details the project's achievements for each of its four main objectives, which were to: recruit highly qualified participants; prepare participants in inclusive education programming; monitor participant progress; and disseminate information. Budget information is summarized. (DB)
