Abstract

This paper discusses the experiences of a researcher and teacher educator (RTE) participating in a faculty-in-residence program in a newly opened STEAM middle school in the south. The goal of the school-university partnership was to increase digital media and learning (DML) experiences for teachers and their students. Case study research is used to describe the structure, communication, planning, teachers’ perceptions, and lessons learned as a means for considering similar school-university partnerships. Planning, observing, co-teaching, and offering responsive professional development provided ongoing, job-embedded support. A majority of the teachers perceived the partnership as valuable towards increasing technology comfort and use with their students, and one-third enacted new DML pedagogical approaches with their students. This study suggests similar partnerships may offer reciprocal benefits for classroom teachers and future teacher preparation programs and K-12 schools.
