Reforming a College

The University of Tennessee Story


Despite persistent calls for teacher education reform, can schools of education make the level of changes needed? Reforming a College describes what the faculty at one college accomplished despite the constraints endemic to higher education. The New College of Education at The University of Tennessee-Knoxville sought to change how the faculty work with one another, their students, and the profession they serve. What was done at Tennessee reveals what is possible – and often impossible – to achieve in institutions that extol educational change but do not reform their own practices.
