Project MUSE: A collaborative program for 7-12 special education teacher preparation

Project MUSE is a federally-funded (325T) program for preservice program improvement at Bank Street College designed to create an innovative case-based, collaborative Master’s degree program to address the shortage of secondary special education teachers. Working in partnership with the Bridges for Learning Network, a component of the New York City Public School System, Project MUSE incorporates public school teachers and administrators as partners in designing multimedia teaching cases which form the nucleus of an integrated, field-based teacher preparation program. This presentation describes the program model, current status and challenges and opportunities that have emerged along the way.
