Building Strong Teacher Preparation Programs Through Collaboration
Unformatted Document Text:  universities that are involved in partnerships that lead to alternative licensure. While the program started following the New York Teaching Fellows model, over the last five years it has evolved into a program that is driven by the specific preparation needs of teachers entering the urban school district. E. Implication for Action: For those who question how an institution that operates a traditional program can also implement an effective and successful alternative program, this session should allay those concerns. The five years of data that has been generated provides a rich and provocative climate for policy discussions, analysis of existing preparation programs, and potential areas of additional research. The data include: basic skills test results; pass rates for entrance exams in both pedagogy and the content areas; and retention rates. Information will be shared on how the university has used these data sets to modify both the alternative and traditional programs over the past few years. The end result is in the strengthening of both programs. Section II: Outcomes and Methods A. Learner/participant Outcomes: Participants will learn how a successful working partnership was developed between a rural area university and an urban school district. Positive results for both institutions will be discussed. After attending this session, participants will understand how important it is to develop a shared ownership between university and school district if the program is to grow and remain effective. Participants will also become acquainted with the diverse methods used in continually evaluating both the traditional and alternative programs. An approach to structuring the alternative programs using the same conceptual framework and knowledge base as is used with the traditional program will be shared. Qualitative and quantitative data will be discussed as it relates to total program evaluation and to make changes within both programs when necessary. B. Methods: Information will be shared with participants through presenter discussion and by providing a paper that includes the development phases and all research findings related to the program. Through the use of PowerPoint and Excel software, the participants will view the key conclusions from the data sets in graphical and animated formats. Photos and video interviews of program participants will also be shared. These techniques will bring this extraordinary project to life for the participants, approximating a visit to the urban setting itself. An extensive discussion section will be allocated to ensure participants have ample opportunity to explore their individual questions and concerns about the program. All handouts and data that are shared will also be posted on a web site accessible by the session’s participants.

universities that are involved in partnerships that lead to alternative licensure. While the program
started following the New York Teaching Fellows model, over the last five years it has evolved
into a program that is driven by the specific preparation needs of teachers entering the urban
school district.
E. Implication for Action:
For those who question how an institution that operates a traditional program can also
implement an effective and successful alternative program, this session should allay those
concerns. The five years of data that has been generated provides a rich and provocative climate
for policy discussions, analysis of existing preparation programs, and potential areas of
additional research. The data include: basic skills test results; pass rates for entrance exams in
both pedagogy and the content areas; and retention rates. Information will be shared on how the
university has used these data sets to modify both the alternative and traditional programs over
the past few years. The end result is in the strengthening of both programs.
Section II: Outcomes and Methods
A. Learner/participant Outcomes:
Participants will learn how a successful working partnership was developed between a
rural area university and an urban school district. Positive results for both institutions will be
discussed. After attending this session, participants will understand how important it is to
develop a shared ownership between university and school district if the program is to grow and
remain effective.
Participants will also become acquainted with the diverse methods used in continually
evaluating both the traditional and alternative programs. An approach to structuring the
alternative programs using the same conceptual framework and knowledge base as is used with
the traditional program will be shared. Qualitative and quantitative data will be discussed as it
relates to total program evaluation and to make changes within both programs when necessary.
B. Methods:
Information will be shared with participants through presenter discussion and by
providing a paper that includes the development phases and all research findings related to the
program. Through the use of PowerPoint and Excel software, the participants will view the key
conclusions from the data sets in graphical and animated formats. Photos and video interviews
of program participants will also be shared. These techniques will bring this extraordinary
project to life for the participants, approximating a visit to the urban setting itself.
An extensive discussion section will be allocated to ensure participants have ample
opportunity to explore their individual questions and concerns about the program. All handouts
and data that are shared will also be posted on a web site accessible by the session’s participants.
