Abstract

This paper presents a descriptive study of two topics: 1) the correspondence between conceptions on co-teaching and the teaching practices of teachers at the School of Education in a private university in Lima; 2) the conditions that favor and restrict co-teaching, from the teachers' perspective. Through interviews and documentary analysis, the idea of co-teaching as "team teaching" was found to be dominant, even though in practice, autonomy was favored, and praised most highly by students were one course developed as "team teaching" and two developed with different degrees of autonomy. The main facilitating factors were personal ones; the main restricting factors were students' ability and aspects relating to management.
