Sharing our Co-teaching experience

In our third year of implementing co-teaching strategies in the Education degrees at Universidad Pontificia Comillas, we are lucky to have received some attention from our own institution.

Following the publication of my article on how we try to develop the collaborative teacher competence in our students, the university’s marketing department suggested to shoot a video of us in action. Although the suggested moment in the year didn’t coincide with our team taught CLIL course, Lyndsay Buckingham and I organized a special (and hopefully enjoyable) review at the end of a first semester course, and invited Magdalena Custodio to supervise some of the student tasks. The final result was this:

Soon after, a piece on the same topic was published in Comillas magazine’s 100th issue. You can find it here, pages 28-29.

Our Co-teaching experience: An assessment after year 1

In the previous entry, I was reflecting on the challenge of planning and delivering a university course in a truly collaboratively way.

Well, my colleagues Magdalena Custodio and Lyndsay Buckingham and myself just presented an analysis of our first year of co-teaching together, in the framework of Instituto Franklin’s 4th International Conference on Bilingual Education in a Globalized World, that took place in Alcalá de Henares on November 16-18, 2018.

You may find a summary of our theoretical framework, as well as a description of our experience and main findings here:

On top of improving our co-taught coursework this year, we hope to build a more systematic research framework and investigate what makes co-teaching a positive factor in our classes, and to what extent exposure to this strategy can influence teacher trainees in their professional growth.
