The paper deals with the theory of team teaching and related terms. This theoretical background leads us to implementation of the team teaching approach during the EPTE (European Primary Teacher Education) teaching in the Pedagogy and Didactics module through English language as a mean of instruction. We adopted action research and case study as a qualitative research design. The purpose of the research was the reflection of participated teachers on important aspects of the team teaching practice (e.g., necessary time for planning lessons, collaboration, solving issues, as well as evaluation, etc.). The students’ attitude towards team teaching was positive and it was their first experience. We formulate several advantages, disadvantages, as well as implications for teacher practice.
Keywords: team teaching, teamwork, collaboration, action research, lesson planning
