Does teacher preparation coursework
really make a difference?
Teacher educators from eight universities have worked together to address the theory to practice chasm. Together, they have reformed their courses to include a balance of research-based knowledge and practical, real-world techniques that help teacher candidates develop and master key skills. Through the Design Based Research process, teacher educators measure their curriculum and instruction in order to examine the impact it has on teacher candidates’ readiness to teach.
Join us for our Design Based Research Symposium where we will present our findings and utilize our data to inform future coursework revisions.
