If It Ain't Broke, Why Fix It? Framework and Processes for Engaging in Constructive Institutional Development and Renewal in the Context of Increasing Standards, Assessments, and Accountability for University-Based Teacher Preparation
Lit, Ira; Nager, Nancy; Snyder, Jon David
Teacher Education Quarterly, v37 n1 p15-34 Win 2010
In this article, the authors offer a descriptive essay outlining the framework and processes of a five-year institutional renewal effort at Bank Street College of Education. Extended the opportunity to participate in the "Teachers for a New Era" (TNE) initiative, a multi-year, multi-million dollar effort to enhance and "radically reshape" teacher preparation programs (Carnegie Corporation of New York, 2001), the institution faced a set of questions and dilemmas likely common to many programs of teacher preparation. While the local context and environment was instrumental in the design and direction of their efforts, the authors suspect that the overarching issues and challenges as well as the rationales and processes moving their work forward will be informative and constructive to a broad range of collegial institutions.
