Pursuing Excellence in Teacher Preparation: Evidence of Institutional Change from TNE Learning Network Universities
Rogers Poliakoff, Anne; Dailey, Caitlin Rose; White, Robin
Academy for Educational Development
The purpose of this report is to document evidence of institutional change in teacher preparation among universities participating in the Teachers for a New Era (TNE) Learning Network. The report is based upon a cross-case analysis of individual case studies of nine universities, conducted by Academy for Educational Development (AED) researchers. The analysis searches out common themes across these universities around four research questions identified in this report. These research questions are: (1) Is there evidence of institutional change along the lines of the TNE design principles in the preparation of teachers at these institutions?; (2) What are the primary categories of change being undertaken on each campus?; (3) What are the indicators of these institutional changes?; and (4) What aspects of the TNE Learning Network, if any, are reported to have triggered or enhanced the occurrence of change or supported its continuation? This report aims not to compare these teacher preparation programs, but rather to document parallels across their institutional experiences, highlight emerging questions and challenges, and, based upon these observations, suggest next steps in policy and programmatic practice. Appendices include: (1) TNE Learning Network Member Institutions; and (2) AED Research Team. (Contains 4 footnotes.)
