Co-teaching can bring a potent combination of unique expertise and diverse perspectives to a course, affording students to a rich, deep learning environment. Dr. Jen Friberg is the Endowed Cross Chair in the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning at Illinois State. She, along with her colleague, Dr. Lisa Vinney, sit down to discuss their journey in creating a truly co-equal collaboration. We discuss how to build trust and confidence in the co-teaching relationship, the importance of communication, and how to avoid missteps. Plus, we look at some of the important questions colleagues must ask each other, and themselves, when trying to determine if co-teaching is right for them.
