Teachers at all levels of education are increasingly asked to draw on their collaborative skills to meet the needs of today’s learners. Originally developed in the Special Education domain, co-teaching involves two teachers working together with groups of students and sharing the planning, organization, delivery and assessment of instruction, as well as the physical space. Co-teaching is a powerful framework that provides new opportunities for enhancing student learning. The use of co-teaching among university faculty members has continued to garner national interest and is the focus of this FLC. Since having two instructors available for class is rarely fiscally possible, this FLC will explore the many ways the concept of co-teaching can be utilized in not only the delivery of instruction, but in assignments and coursework.
