Abstract:

This paper discusses a Professional Development School Council formed to support joint action research between teacher education faculty and teachers from Professional Development Schools. PDS partner schools and the unit share ongoing commitments to commonly identify goals, regularly share resources and expertise and have assigned liaisons from the unit who work with Professional Development School committees at each school site. PDS activities had focused on faculty development, shared instruction of teacher candidates, and shared supervision of practicum work and the collaborative teaching of K-12 learners. When preparing for 2005 NCATE visit and reflecting on the work that was done by these faculties, it was determined that a larger PDS Council was needed to oversee and encourage action research that was informally being conducted in PDS sites and teacher education. A process of identifying collaborative action research endeavors was conducted in spring 2005 and beginning the following fall, the faculties were asked to identify action-research agendas, choose team members who could help facilitate this research and begin meeting to accomplish these research agendas. Each semester the collaborative endeavor action-research topics have grown in breadth and depth. Twice yearly collaborative summaries are written by the research teams and shared across schools through a website and a planned retreat each semester. These collaborations, now supported with time and funding are growing into jointly presented papers at conferences, jointly written journal submissions and, in two cases, book chapters with co-authors from the unit and partner schools. The evolution of this process and the perceptions of joint action-research teams will serve as the focus of the discussion.
