As often as possible, mentor teachers are assigned two preparation periods to provide time for collaborative planning. NUTR university faculty members observe residents frequently, working with mentors to provide guidance to residents regarding classroom practice. Community building and collaboration is another important aspect of the program.

However, a third space is always a utopian endeavor, and is never fully actualized. While the NUTR has gained some ground in their attempt to create a third space, challenges abound, and the process is never easy or finished (Klein, Taylor, Onore, Strom, & Abrams, 2013). The NUTR is grounded in a constructivist philosophy of learning and seeks to promote a transformative conception of teaching and learning espousing an inquiry based, dialogical, problem-posing pedagogy that positions students as active meaning makers (Freire, 1970).
