School-University Partnerships in Teacher Education
Abstract:One predominant theme in the teacher education literature is the need for symbiotic school-university partnerships that serve universities in educating prospective teachers and serve the schools in providing content and pedagogical knowledge. While there has been a strong tradition of school involvement in teacher education in the form of support for the practicum, only recently have partnerships begun to explore further options for involvement that have the potential to change the nature of teacher education and schooling.
This article provides a brief overview of the literature on school-university partnerships: identifies ten strategies that might operate within partnerships; and discusses some important processes in establishing a partnership.
