Collaboration Between Higher Ed and K-12: Bringing Teacher Education Full Circle through a Blended Learning Classroom

Work as adjunct faculty means having one foot in higher education and one outside. This stance bridges a teacher education program with a K-12 blended classroom in our roles as adjunct faculty /full time K-12 teacher and full-time associate professor. Our blended classroom is designed to instruct, remediate, and enrich secondary students. These students interact with electronic media as a means of direct instruction. Face-to-face time is used for deeper interactions through differentiated instruction. It is also designed to meet a goal of university/school partnerships. Interaction with K-12 students informs pre-service teacher education course development and influences effective adjunct practices.
