Co-teaching involves two or more professionals share responsibility for planning, delivering, and assessing instruction. Research has found that co-teaching improves student academic achievement and social interactions. As a result, many inclusive classrooms have embraced co-teaching models. However, many teachers concern of time and support needed to engage in co-teaching. Proper training and tools are essential to ensure its success. Because of its collaborative nature, Wiki, a web-based co-authoring tool, is one of the potential technologies suitable for enhancing co-teaching. Research reports that college instructors have used wiki on various collaborative writing projects. Barriers related to design and implementation of Wiki collaboration have, however, also been identified from previous studies. This session will address both pedagogical and technical aspects of adapting Wiki in developing and facilitating co-teaching assignment in a graduate level teacher education course.
