Building Professional Learning Communities within a University--Public School Partnership
Bullough, Robert V., Jr.; Baugh, Steven C.
Theory Into Practice, v47 n4 p286-293 Oct 2008
Building faculty or professional learning communities is an idea that has come of age. This article describes work being done within the Brigham Young University (BYU)-Public School Partnership to form and sustain such communities across higher and public education and in ways consistent with the four aims of the Agenda for Education in a Democracy embraced by the National Network for Educational Renewal. Noting that too little attention has been given to determining the purposes of learning communities, Partnership initiatives supporting the Agenda and designed to create learning communities are described and results briefly presented.
