Emphasis on Partnership:

“For our students to have a vision of teaching as something that is an intellectually challenging and collaborative learning experience, they must have experiences in schools where teachers learn together.”

~Former Dean Ada Beth Cutler

The MSU’s Teacher Education Program was profiled as one of four exemplary school-university partnership models

Montclair State University

Montclair State University’s (MSU) teacher education program focuses on all three TNE design principles: data- driven decisions, engagement of Arts & Science faculty, and an emphasis on teaching as a clinical practice profession. Data from MSU’s Teacher Education Assessment System as well as evidence derived from performance assessments is analyzed to inform programmatic adjustments and improvements. Its Center of Pedagogy engages arts and science and public school colleges as equal partners in teacher education. MSU also is increasing and intensifying mentoring during field experiences coupled with on-site courses for teacher candidates in partner schools. In its partnership with Newark (New Jersey) City Schools, MSU has convened clinical faculty and mentors in forums to learn common strategies and skills that can be utilized both at the pre-service and induction programs. The partnership utilizes NTC’s formative assessment system to provide a common framework for conversations about teaching practice and to accelerate new teacher growth and development.
