Courses in the Psychological Foundations of Education: Strategies for Enhancing the International Dimensions of Teacher Education.
Torney-Purta, Judith
This paper begins with the premise that international and cross-cultural resources belong in courses in psychological foundations of education as much as in other courses in the teacher education curriculum. Strategies for progress toward the long-term goal of an internationalized teacher education curriculum that begins with campus-wide initiatives and policy-making are considered. In addition to campus-wide programs, several strategies are suggested which small groups of faculty who teach psychological foundations courses can initiate. Finally, activities which individual faculty can use in psychological foundations courses to internationalize them even with limited support from the campus or from other faculty are discussed. (JD)
