Building Alliances to Support Beginning Teachers Through an Electronic Network
Unformatted Document Text:  This pilot project with our graduates who are beginning teachers will help us to refine and improve an electronic network and will assist us in figuring out different ways and best practices to reach the graduates of our education programs in their first years in the profession. Through this work, we will explore how to most effectively use face-to-face events and different types of technology—email, discussion boards, web-based resources, —in this support effort. We will continue to conduct research on these multiple ways to support our graduates. We will also expand the alliances involved in creating and sustaining the project, involving liberal arts faculty at the university and veteran teachers in our professional development schools as well as strengthening our current collaboration with the Office of Alumni Affairs and the Center for Academic Technology. We plan to disseminate our findings to help inform other SCDEs. SECTION II: OUTCOMES AND METHODS A. Learner/Participant Outcomes Participants will: - Learn about specific supports, particularly an electronic support network, provided to graduates by one university, as well as ways in which alliances strengthen and support this work - Learn about ways in which evidence from data informs practice- Hear about lessons learned from these activities - Share ideas with each other about ways in which various teacher preparation programs are supporting their graduates; discuss successes and challenges of an electronic network; and, based on data collection and experiences, discuss the design of models which might be implemented B. Methods In this roundtable discussion, the two presenters will distribute handouts and briefly present their model for beginning teacher support and the results of their research. Questions and comments will be invited during the presentation, and the majority of the time will be spent interactively discussing ideas generated by the work of the presenters and experiences of the participants.

This pilot project with our graduates who are beginning teachers will help us to refine
and improve an electronic network and will assist us in figuring out different ways and
best practices to reach the graduates of our education programs in their first years in the
profession. Through this work, we will explore how to most effectively use face-to-face
events and different types of technology—email, discussion boards, web-based resources,
—in this support effort. We will continue to conduct research on these multiple ways to
support our graduates. We will also expand the alliances involved in creating and
sustaining the project, involving liberal arts faculty at the university and veteran teachers
in our professional development schools as well as strengthening our current
collaboration with the Office of Alumni Affairs and the Center for Academic
Technology. We plan to disseminate our findings to help inform other SCDEs.
SECTION II: OUTCOMES AND METHODS
A. Learner/Participant Outcomes
Participants will:
-
Learn about specific supports, particularly an electronic support network,
provided to graduates by one university, as well as ways in which alliances
strengthen and support this work
- Learn about ways in which evidence from data informs practice
-
Hear about lessons learned from these activities
-
Share ideas with each other about ways in which various teacher preparation
programs are supporting their graduates; discuss successes and challenges of an
electronic network; and, based on data collection and experiences, discuss the
design of models which might be implemented
B. Methods
In this roundtable discussion, the two presenters will distribute handouts and briefly
present their model for beginning teacher support and the results of their research.
Questions and comments will be invited during the presentation, and the majority of the
time will be spent interactively discussing ideas generated by the work of the presenters
and experiences of the participants.
