This monograph contains three papers. "Collaboration and Team Teaching in Higher Education" (Leslie Marlow and Duane Inman), describes the implementation of team teaching at three institutions of higher education and provides suggestions and outcomes for future collaborators. "In Their Own Words: Student Learning Experiences from a Pilot Diversity Course in Costa Rica" (Mary C. Clement and Jennie M. Smith), describes the development and implementation of a teacher education course in diversity, offering papers by three students in the course. The papers indicate how the course provided students with new experiences; highlight the hands-on strategies that future teachers can learn by immersing themselves in a cross-cultural, non-English speaking environment; and discuss specific issues involved in working with Hispanic students in a U.S. classroom. "Pump and Dump: Educational Reform of the New Millennium?" (Chris Muire), examines and questions the recent phase of experimentation with reform in U.S. public schools, which appears to focus primarily on untested, market-based strategies, noting the possible impact on education in the United States. (Papers contain references.) (SM)
