Working in tandem with institutions across the globe is important to growing our collaborative influence on the world stage. The College of Education partners with universities around the world, including:
Universidad Catolica del Maule
Here, the linkage helps promote the exchange of ideas about building graduate programs in education. The partnership is particularly focused on providing doctoral students in the U.S. and Chile with an understanding of a range of research methods and how to apply these to solving educational problems.
Tribal Mensa Nurturing Program
Current collaborative initiatives include the ongoing development of professional development programs for teachers in both urban areas, as well as in tribal schools that serve very low income students. Laurie Croft, clinical professor, has been named one of the international Patrons for the TMNP and will develop resources for their programs.
University of Pristina
In our newest linkage, potential projects include education faculty assisting the Kosovo Ministry of Education and the University of Prishtina with both pre- and in-service teacher training. Higher education reform and student assessment are also points of collaboration. Faculty and student exchanges between the two institutions are strong future possibilities.
Joetsu University of Education
This 20-plus-years partnership has brought hundreds of Japanese pre-service teachers to Iowa to teach elementary school students about Japanese culture. Reciprocally, these students experience lectures and discussions about US education. Recently, Iowa preservice students have fulfilled part of their practicum experience in Joetsu City schools.
Oslo and Akershus University of Applied Science
Faculty from both institutions have devoted time at the partner university to study teacher education frameworks and to give presentations in coursework for education students. Teacher education students have participated in exchanges, online and in person, including student teaching in Olso.
