Welcome to the Teaching Teleapprenticeship Project (TTa) at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. The Teaching Teleapprenticeship Project is developing and evaluating innovative teacher education models. These models extend the traditional face-to-face apprenticeships currently used in student teaching by using electronic networks to provide a more powerful context for learning in preservice and inservice education courses. Through network interactions and resource sharing, these models bring together the university coordinators/student teaching supervisors, school district master teachers/instructors, the preservice teachers, and the students being taught by the student teacher. While improving the education of science and mathematics teachers, these models also provide mediators for K-12 learning through electronic networks.
