University of Southern Indiana



The Co-Teaching Model demonstrates best practices in student teaching and was first used by the University of Southern Indiana's Teacher Education Department in 2010.  Over 500 area teachers have been trained in the Co-Teaching Model.

Co-Teaching is offered at USI in August and January each year.  Cooperating teachers may also choose to view the Co-Teaching Training online.

All teacher candidates and university supervisors are trained in the Co-Teaching Model.
