A Multi-Level Analysis of the Teacher Education Internship in Terms of Its Collaborative Dimension in Northern Cyprus
Kuter, Sitkiye; Koc, Sabri
International Journal of Educational Development, v29 n4 p415-425 Jul 2009
Partnership is a two-way enterprise which becomes meaningful when the partners at different levels are fully engaged in mutual cooperation, aiming at promoting both trainees' and educators' professional growth. This case study, qualitative in nature, was conducted with administrators, educators, and trainees to examine the collaboration dimension of the multi-layer processes of the EDUC420-Internship regarding its organizational and communication aspects. The data, analyzed through categorization of codes, revealed striking limitations inhibiting the collaboration dimension of the internship and suggested its reconceptualization around a formalized give-and-take mechanism to cultivate reciprocal communication among the ministry, the university and the schools.
