Centers of Pedagogy: New Structures for Educational Renewal
This volume in the AgAnda for Education in a Democracy series examines a growing movement of schools and universities collaborating in ways that break down traditional barriers and promote systemic educational renewal. Centers of Pedagogy offers a practical framework for advancing university-school collaboration on educational improvement. The authors draw from their diverse experiences as university deans and focus on the Centers of Pedagogy model, a strategy conceived by John Goodlad and refined by participating institutions in the National Network for Educational Renewal. Under this model, faculty in teacher education, the arts and sciences, and the P-12 schools work together to provide aspiring teachers with a well-rounded education. This collaboration ultimately improves school curricula, teaching practice, and the education of educators. Featuring case examples from a variety of successful partnership programs, this book studies the policies, organizational structures, and other key conditions needed to establish such vital centers.
