A residency approach to teacher education

Tim McDonald

Next year the School of Education at Edith Cowan University will pilot a Teacher Residency Program for graduate teacher education students, as an innovative means to recruit, prepare and retain quality teachers. The program pairs university coursework with extended periods of school placement. It will allow participating schools and teachers to work alongside university staff in determining what aspiring teachers need to know and experience, and is designed to create a more authentic setting for pre-service education and provide a greater integration of theory and practice. The initiative will help to develop a generation of teachers who are school-ready from day one and have the capacity to enhance the academic and social abilities of all students they teach.
