Each college of education has its own leadership style, way of doing business, and community of learners within their faculty. Because of these hallmark personalities, legal and accreditation complexities, and historically ingrained approaches, cross-institution collaboration can be especially challenging. As with any project, formal partnerships of this kind require well-defined roles, respect for deadlines, agreement on a common approach for tackling the work, and even formal agreements such as memoranda of understanding.
Global Education for Teachers (GET) Collaborative is a joint effort - funded by a grant from the Longview Foundation - between George Mason University and American University. The goal of the program is to support internationalization of teacher education programs through collaborative efforts such as workshops, book discussions, and mini-grants.
