Towards an integrated organizational model for teacher education with multiple providers (R-7865)

The project aims at outlining alternative organizational structures for the shorter courses of teacher education (uncertified teachers with a bachelor or master degree). The project provides several concrete results. First, we identify the desired situation and the problems at each of the actors. We ascertain the views that have been taken before by the project partners, and how the evolution of the institutions is (in terms of number of students, staff, infrastructure and funding). Secondly, we discuss both conceptual and practical alternative governance models, and test them out with the stakeholders. For each alternative organizational model we discuss the pros and cons, the preconditions and critical success factors. Thirdly, we propose an operationalization of policy Decisions regarding the financial structure, personnel structure, infrastructure and internal quality management. This both conceptual as applied to teacher training. Finally, we provide policy recommendations concerning transformation to other regions. Starting from the literature, we propose various governance models and we evaluated them. For each model, we ascertain the preconditions and critical success factors of the teacher education. Because of the complexity and interdependence of teacher training in the province of Limburg, we take the situation in the province of Limburg as a case study. It is an association and net transcending project aiming to create an attractive offer that provides a customized program for each trainee teacher. The model which comes from the Limburg case project will provide inspiration for other cases teacher training in Flanders.
