A better way to student teach

Two Iowa colleges have been chosen to collaborate with the Iowa Department of Education on a pilot project designed to explore whether there are better ways to deliver the educational experience to student teachers.

The University of Northern Iowa in Cedar Falls and Dordt College in Sioux Center will share in a $1 million allocation from the Iowa Legislature to pilot an expansion of the student teaching program to a year-long experience. Student teachers in Iowa currently train for 14 consecutive weeks.

“Iowa produces very good teachers,” said Iowa Department of Education’s Larry Bice, an administrative consultant for educator preparation. “This pilot is an examination of ways that could make them even better.”
