Abstract


Collaboration and networking between universities and schools are the main components to support teacher education in this 21st century. This article investigated into the current practices of the school-university partnership (SUP) in two teacher training institutes in Myanmar. The aim of the article is to understand current collaboration practices between university, college, and schools. A qualitative method was conducted in this study through focus group, formal and informal interviews. The teacher educators’ demonstrations of teaching are observed. The interview results showed that there is a lack of a strong partnership between partners, focusing more on administrative purposes, rather than the training of student teachers. Observation showed that school-university partnerships would be more effective in teacher training if the school teachers and teacher educators collaborate in the demonstrative teaching for student teachers.
