Program Improvement Tales from the Field
During 2010 the Monarch Center held three Program Improvement seminars focused on preparing teacher candidates for collaborative teaching. Twenty-two university teams of three professors participated during the 3-day work sessions. Guided by our experts, participants explored methods of preparing future personnel who are confident and competent to work collaboratively with other professionals to improve schooling for students with disabilities. Follow along as the California State University, Long Beach team chronicles their efforts at transforming their teacher preparation program.
