Supporting Minority-Serving Institutions in Their Program Improvement Efforts: A Responsive Technical Assistance Approach
Bay, Mary; Lopez-Reyna, Norma A.; Guillory, Barbara L.
Interdisciplinary Journal of Teaching and Learning, v2 n3 p104-114 Fall 2012
To reform a special education teacher preparation program can be gratifying, difficult, complex, political, and urgently needed. The Monarch Center, a federally funded technical assistance center, was established to guide and support minority-serving institutions in their efforts to improve their teacher preparation programs. Four guidelines direct the Center's technical assistance approach: shaping new ideas to meet unique needs; understanding the impact of working simultaneously in shifting contexts; building relationships that foster learning "in context;" and nudging participants toward reaching their goals. The article discusses each guideline.
