ED 282 : Collaboration: Roles and Responsibilities as a Member of the Multidisciplinary Team
This course is designed to provide teachers with knowledge of collaborative and co-teaching models of instruction and to prepare them to implement these models in their schools and classrooms. While co-teaching can be a rewarding experience for students and professionals, understanding its elements and foundations is critical in creating a positive learning environment for students. Co-teaching requires not only pedagogical skill on the part of the participating teachers, but also a willingness to share and collaborate in the teaching of all students in special education and inclusion classrooms. This course is consistent with state and local educational goals including the focus on activities that participants will apply to real-world settings.
