Extending Transfer of Learning Theory to Transformative Learning Theory: A Model for Promoting Teacher Leadership
Harris, Sandra; Lowery-Moore, Hollis; Farrow, Vicky
Theory Into Practice, v47 n4 p318-326 Oct 2008
This article describes collaborative efforts to frame university teacher preparation program activities within transfer of learning and transformative learning theories to promote teacher leadership. Specifically, we describe (a) a community sponsored, public school, campus-based experience during an introductory teacher preparation course; (b) a university supervision program designed to empower teachers to take primary responsibility for guiding and developing future colleagues; and (c) a model for providing guidance and development for a postbaccalaureate alternate route to certification for students during their first year of teaching. A goal for each program is to foster within teachers a long-term commitment to teacher leadership, particularly in culturally diverse, low socioeconomic schools. (Contains 1 table.)
