Collaboratively Transforming Teacher Preparation through Global Partnerships Symposium @ College of Education & Human Development, room 1030
Jul 29 @ 9:00 am – 4:00 pm

The College of Education and Human Development is co-hosting the Collaboratively Transforming Teacher Preparation through Global Partnerships Symposium on Wednesday, July 29, 2015, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. in room 1030.

The conference will feature presentations from faculty and staff working on the Global Knowledge Alliance to discuss the work they’ve started in Zambia. The alliance is a joint project initiated by Seoul National University’s Lynn Ilon to develop a sustainable model of higher education that’s affordable for students in less developed countries.

Ilon, professor in Seoul National’s College of Education, will be the featured speaker. She is a knowledge economist with a specialization in international development and has lectured and consulted in over 20 countries for the World Bank, Harvard University, the United Nations, Educational Testing Service, the U.S. Agency for International Development, Department for International Development (UK), the Asian Development Bank, the African Development Bank, UNESCO, several national governments and their agencies and several local and global NGOs.

“This is a great opportunity for faculty and students in the college to learn about the Global Knowledge Alliance and explore possible ways of working in it,” said Gwen Benson, CEHD associate dean for school, community and international partnerships. “We want to encourage others in the Georgia State family that are interested in Africa and Zambia to attend.”

The conference is free and open to the public and lunch will be served; however, an RSVP is requested. Those interested in attending should RSVP to Norma Green at 404-413-8094 or ngreen22@gsu.edu.

An Examination of Preservice/Mentor Teacher Interactions On Beliefs, Professional Identity, and Science Teaching Practices
by Marian Janet Nourollahi

The purpose of this study of preservice and mentor science teachers’ interactions on their beliefs, professional identity, and teaching practices is to: 1) distinguish between what preservice and mentor teachers believe about science teaching based on research or prior experience, and their actual science teaching practices, and 2) determine how preservice and mentor teacher interactions help shape their beliefs and professional identity regarding science teaching and how this affects their teaching practices. The main research question is: How do the interactions between preservice science teachers and their mentor teachers affect their beliefs, professional identity, and science teaching practices? This question was explored through a situated learning lens utilizing a descriptive, single case study design. One-on-one interviews of the preservice and mentor teachers were conducted and analyzed for emerging themes on teacher beliefs and professional identity and specific categories of science teaching practices. Videotaped observations of preservice and mentor teachers while planning and discussing lessons were analyzed to determine meanings on science teaching practices that emerge through their interaction and subsequent discourse. Written artifacts, including lesson plans, mentor teacher feedback, and researcher field notes, were collected and analyzed to compare science teaching practices with the teachers’ espoused beliefs on science teaching and learning. The case study narrative that results from the written and verbal communication between the preservice and mentor teachers provides important insight into their relationship and the possible subsequent influences on science teaching practices. This may also have important implications for the future design of preservice teacher field experiences in science teacher education programs.
