Intellectual Capital: The Intangible Assets of Professional Development Schools
Basile, Carole G., Ed.
A Professional Development School (PDS) offers unique university-school relationships that can change the culture of learning and add value to students and the community. Initially created in the 1980s, the PDS movement is growing across the country and is now a respected teacher education model. In this book, Carole G. Basile has collected stories written by people connected to the University of Colorado Denver, which has one of the longest-standing PDS partnerships (established in 1993). The site professors, site coordinators, teachers, and others describe in engaging detail the work they do and its impact. By providing a framework situated in the notion of intellectual capital, PDS faculty from the university and K-12 share how the PDS model adds value to schools and students. This book begins with a foreword by Lee Teitel. Chapters include: (1) Intellectual Capital and Professional Development Schools (Carole Basile); (2) Managing Knowledge in Professional Development Schools (Carole Basile); (3) The Principal's Role in Knowledge Management (Cindy Gutierrez and Susan Field); (4) Building External Capital Reaching Out to the Community; (5) Building Internal Capital Developing Systems for Managing Knowledge; (6) Building Human Capital: Creating Lifelong Learners; (7) Changing School Culture; and (8) Lessons Learned and Building Intellectual Capital (Lessons Learned and Building Intellectual Capital). A glossary, references, and a list of contributers are included.
