Innovative Field Experiences in Teacher Education: Student-Teachers and Mentors as Partners in Teaching
Baeten, Marlies; Simons, Mathea
International Journal of Teaching and Learning in Higher Education, v28 n1 p38-51 2016
This study investigates team teaching between student teachers and mentors during student teachers' field experiences. A systematic literature search was conducted, which resulted into a narrative review. Three team teaching models could be distinguished: (1) the co-planning and co-evaluation model, (2) the assistant teaching model, and (3) the teaming model. Implementing these models during student teachers' field experiences shows benefits for student teachers (e.g., support and professional and personal growth), mentors (e.g., professional and personal growth), and learners in the classroom (e.g., few disciplinary problems and a wide variety of teaching styles). However, disadvantages were found as well. Finally, suggestions for a successful implementation of team teaching were made. By providing an overview of the literature on team teaching between student teachers and mentors, this study contributes to theory development about team teaching. Moreover, it may inspire teacher educators to implement team teaching. Our study may also inspire other higher education programs in which field experiences are essential.
