Book Description

By exploring the experiences of pre- and in-service teachers, as well as the design and implementation of study abroad programs developed specifically for them, this volume highlights the potential of international learning in promoting teachers’ global and critical understandings of education.

Recognizing teacher study abroad as a unique strand within the wider study abroad literature, Study Abroad for Pre- and In-Service Teachers emphasizes how study abroad can be conceptualized, theorized, and implemented as part of initial and continuing teacher training. Chapters consider study abroad programs and teaching practices in Europe, Asia, America, and in indigenous communities, and document the transformative learning experiences which impact the way teachers think about learning, teaching, and identity. Together, the chapters foreground the personal and professional advantages of teacher study abroad and provide key insights to inform design and programming for sustainable, impactful teacher study abroad which supports teachers in building intercultural competence, and enhancing their capacity to serve diverse students.

This volume will be of interest to researchers, scholars, and teacher educators with an interest in international mobility, multicultural education, and study abroad. In addition, pre- and in-service teachers will find the book of value.
