Simons, Mathea; Baeten, Marlies; Vanhees, Claudio – Journal of Teacher Education, 2020
During field experiences in teacher education, student teachers are generally placed individually with a mentor. Teacher education institutes search for alternative field experience models, inspired by collaborative learning such as team teaching. This study explores two team teaching models, parallel and sequential teaching, by investigating the…
