Train the Trainer Workshops

The Academy for Co-Teaching and Collaboration offers two-day Train the Trainer workshops, which are designed to provide universities and their school partners, or school districts implementing co-teaching between two licensed teachers, with the foundational knowledge and basic materials to implement co-teaching. 

We believe co-teaching should be a programmatic shift, not an individual initiative. As such, we encourage participants to enroll as a team–preferably with 3-5 colleagues–so they can discuss adaptations, modifications, changes, and implications in their own program. A team that also provides support as participants return to their institutions and begin implementing co-teaching in their programs.

We offer Train the Trainer workshops for two applications: Co-Teaching in Student Teaching and Co-Teaching Between Two Licensed Educators. A self-paced online training is available for those interested in Co-Teaching in Student Teaching or Residency programs.

For more information on upcoming workshops, or to schedule a training, contact Dr. Teresa Washut Heck.

Foundations of Co-Teaching in Student Teaching/Residency

This three-hour workshop prepares mentor teachers and university supervisors to work successfully in a co-teaching model of student teaching/residency.


Foundations of Co-Teaching Between Two Licensed Teachers

This half to full-day workshop provides schools with the basics of co-teaching, as well as the knowledge to implement this model between two licensed professionals. Those who attend the training typically provide leadership and professional development for their institution as they develop and implement the co-teaching program. 

Consultative Training
