The Promise of Transformative Partnerships
Yendol-Hoppey, Diane
Teacher Education and Practice, v23 n3 p326-330 Sum 2010
The promise, potential, and problems associated with school-university partnerships interested in better preparing teachers for the challenges they face teaching in today's schools rest in educators' ability to actualize transformative practices within partnership contexts. To date, most partnerships have focused on less complex forms of collaboration that do not lead to partners engaging in transformative work by learning from each other about their core, shared business. This article explores multiple purposes for collaboration and argues that, though key to actualizing the promise and potential of a partnership, the concepts of simultaneous renewal and transformative partnership remain ill-defined, too infrequently actualized, and seldom shared or sustained, even after two decades of professional development school research.
