• Partnership Work Reflects, Strengthens Community

  • A clinical partnership is about so much more than candidate development, say educators at Butler University and their partners in the Indianapolis Public Schools. In their case, the partnership supports teacher and faculty learning, says Assistant Professor Susan Adamson, as well as developing a pipeline of local students who are inspired to move into the teaching profession. This inspiration arises from the boundary-defying engagement by both preservice and in-service teachers beyond classroom work in student activities like plays, sports, and writing centers, which also strengthens the sense of community for all involved.
