Aspects of School–University Research Networks that Play a Role in Developing, Sharing and Using Knowledge Based on Teacher Research
The goal of the present study was to explore and describe which aspects of a school–university research network play a role in processes of developing, sharing and using knowledge based on research by Master’s students. The authors combined three perspectives on a network to better understanding of knowledge processes that take place within school–university research networks. A coding system was developed to analyze aspects that play a role in knowledge processes within a school–university research network. Fifteen aspects of a school–university research network were recognized in the processes of developing, sharing and using knowledge based on research by Master’s students

This study explored and reformulated definitions of classroom dialogue—in which teachers and students exchange, evaluate, and build on ideas—in the context of interactive whiteboard use. This article focuses on the collaborative theory-building process itself, whose aim was to exploit insights derived from research to stimulate and inform thinking, guide principled development of new classroom practices, and refine the theory. Three university researchers and three United Kingdom teachers, along with their students aged 10–14, took part in the research

This study focuses on seven mentor teachers who have mentored one-three years in peer placements to provide a textured understanding of their perceptions and experiences. Results indicate: (a) peer collaboration provides important pedagogical scaffolding that helps student teachers plan and implement complex pedagogies; and (b) peer-mentor observation helps student teachers feel more efficacious about their developing practice.

Organic Collaboration: Sustaining Teachers and Teacher Educators in the Cottage Industry of Curriculum Making
This inquiry examines the collaborative relationship between Mary, a teacher at a junior high, and Stefinee, a teacher educator at a nearby university. The purpose of this inquiry is to explore the experiences the authors have had in their collaboration that have sustained both of the authors in their professional lives. The authors use emblematic narratives to make assertions about their collaboration through the use of the metaphor of an informal roadside fruit stand while contrasting their work with larger collectives of school– university partnerships.

This article describes a university-school partnership which was formed to develop a community-based model (CBM) of teacher preparation that placed pre-service teachers in urban schools for a full year. The authors wished to explore the sustainability of the CBM of teacher preparation. Data were collected through surveying faculty and both pre-service and new teachers who graduated from the CBM-based teacher preparation program. The article considers the common concerns and disparate roles that the three groups considered paramount in preparing new teachers for urban schools.

Current models of initial teacher training (ITT) in England include substantial elements of school-based experience developed in collaborative partnerships with local schools involving university tutors working with experienced classroom teachers. This article focuses on a small-scale research project in which mentor and trainee dialogue is examined. Activity theory analysis was chosen as the methodological framework to be used to identify actions and changes in the organisation of teacher-education partnerships which sought to increase focus on pedagogical content knowledge as part of day-to-day reflection on trainees’ development in the school.
