1. Learn about mutually beneficial partnerships between school districts and university Noyce participants.
2. Gain ideas for forming university partnerships with school districts and community organizations.
3. Share ideas for improving partnership opportunities.
We will be utilizing survey results and analyses in order to back up decisions we have made related to our program. Additionally research, used to base some of our field work on, will be presented based upon research conducted by one of our co-PIs, demonstrating that “Research and practice show and tell us that in order for teacher candidates to gain the knowledge, skills, and dispositions to be successful in their own classrooms, they need sustained and generative field-based experiences Zeichner, 2010). Teacher candidates must be provided with robust opportunities in classrooms to develop as practitioners in supportive and scaffolded ways (Rainville, 2016). Zeichner, K. (2010).

Information will be shared regarding partnerships that have been formed, including but not limited to, summer service learning, outreach and recruitment, scholarships, enhanced curriculum, mentoring supports, induction support, and professional identity development. Specific ideas for forging relationships will be discussed. Methods in which relationships continue to grow and ways in which they evolve will be examined. Participants in this workshop will leave with ideas for growing their community relationships to provide for further opportunities for their Noyce Scholars. Participants will share their partnership ideas in group settings in order to further grow ideas and additionally grow partnerships between programs.
