Teacher Education in an Interdisciplinary Cohort Model
Smith, Douglas
Techniques: Connecting Education and Careers (J3), v82 n6 p28-30 Sep 2007
In this article, the author describes the Interdisciplinary Cohort Model of Teacher Preparation at the University of Kentucky. It has been successful in preparing business and marketing teachers in a one-year period, has made educational foundations an integral part of classroom practice, and fostered collaboration between business and marketing teacher candidates and those from core academic areas. This model for preparing business and marketing teachers was developed to solve several questions that are frequently posed in today's "get new teachers out quick" environment: (1) How can business and marketing teachers be responsibly prepared in the least length of time?; (2) How can foundations of teacher education become more meaningful to business and marketing education teacher candidates?; and (3) How can business and marketing teachers learn to collaborate with teachers of other disciplines, particularly academic core teachers?
