A Fundamental Partnership: The Experiences of Practising Teachers as Lecturers in a Pre-Service Teacher Education Programme
Allen, Jeanne Maree; Butler-Mader, Carol; Smith, Richard A.
Teachers and Teaching: Theory and Practice, v16 n5 p615-632 Oct 2010
This paper reports an evaluation of an innovative university-school partnership in which teacher practitioners work as university lecturers in a regional Australian pre-service teacher education programme. The philosophy of this programme encompasses authentic partnerships between universities, schools and other industry employers. The study was motivated by an interest in understanding the experiences and outcomes for the teacher practitioners and in documenting their experiences. Staff members who are currently on contract as university lecturers as well as teachers who have completed secondments and returned to school settings are surveyed. This paper focuses on suggestions to improve the partnership and discusses future directions for the partnership. (Contains 2 tables and 4 notes.)
