Proposal Abstract

The term co-teaching refers to the practice of two or more teachers teaching together for the benefit of students. It has been used in a host of different contexts for a variety of purposes such as: to bring specialist knowledge to students; for teachers to share their different areas of expertise with students; and for teachers' to gain situated professional learning in new methods of teaching. We have been studying co-teaching for a number of years through video-recording and micro-analysis. In this session we will share some of our findings about effective ways teachers teach together in co-teaching. The aim of the session is to share our knowledge in ways that can support teachers who would like to try co-teaching in their courses.

Statement

This presentation reflects the stream 'connection, engagement and exploration'. At TRU, instructors often bring experts into their classes but otherwise we tend to teach in isolation. Co-teaching provides us with great ways to learn from each other and to bring our areas of expertise together for the benefit of students.
