Team Teaching and Learning in Adult Education


This issue explores the many ways that team teaching enhances both teaching and learning and how it can be successfully incorporated into a variety of adult education contexts. The contributors show how team teaching can be used to increase both organizational and individual learning in a range of settings outside of a traditional classroom, for example, a recently deregulated public utility, a national literacy organization, and community-based settings such as Chicago's south side. They discuss how team teaching can be used in colleges and universities, describing specific strategies for administrators and teachers who want to integrate it into their curricula and classrooms. In addition, the coeditors share what they learned in teaming up to edit this issue, outlining a model for team teaching that can be applied by educators in all settings. This is the 87th issue of the quarterly journal New Directions for Adult and Continuing Education.
