Partnering for the Clinical Preparation of Education Specialists
Robinson, Suzanne; Cote, Debra
School-University Partnerships, v9 n1 p17-19 Spr 2016
NCATE's (2010) "Report of the Blue Ribbon Panel" calls for a shift toward clinical preparation and partnerships as a means of adequately preparing new teachers for the 21st century classroom. Looking at special education teacher preparation, there exist few model programs that have paved the road for others in implementing new clinical preparation programs for education specialist candidates. As such, partnerships between institutes of higher education and local schools are all the more critical, as is the sharing of program development across the field. The purpose of this paper is to share our newly restructured program by highlighting four key features: (a) school partnerships, (b) co-teaching, (c) pupil-centered practice and action research, and (d) multiple stakeholders and contexts.
