Re-Culturing Educator Preparation Programs: A Collaborative Case Study of Continuous Improvement
Teacher educators at one institution of higher education collaborated to reculture systems for a focus on continuous improvement even within mounting accountability pressures. A framework of social network theory allowed for themes to develop around layered interactions of faculty, processes, and professional capital. Findings focused on people, groups, and systems for sustaining a culture of continuous improvement.
