Rethinking the Connections between Campus Courses and Field Experiences in College- and University-Based Teacher Education
ARTICLE

Journal of Teacher Education Volume 61, Number 1, ISSN 0022-4871

Abstract

This article examines a variety of work currently going on across the country in newly created hybrid spaces to more closely connect campus courses and field experiences in university-based preservice teacher education. It is argued that the old paradigm of university-based teacher education where academic knowledge is viewed as the authoritative source of knowledge about teaching needs to change to one where there is a nonhierarchical interplay between academic, practitioner, and community expertise. It is argued that this new epistemology for teacher education will create expanded learning opportunities for prospective teachers that will better prepare them to be successful in enacting complex teaching practices. (Contains 5 notes.)
