Internationalizing Teacher Education. A Workshop Plan.
Thomas, R. Murray
An outline is presented of steps taken in a one-day workshop designed for teacher education faculty who plan to augment the international components of the teacher education curriculum. The focus of the workshop was on "A Guide to Workshop Procedures" (reproduced in this paper), which delineates in detail the sequential activities and tasks for workshop participants. The topics described in this document include: (1) the purpose of the workshop; (2) meanings of the phrase "internationalizing a professional-education program"; (3) potential ways of expanding the international aspects of teacher education; and (4) specific innovations that the teacher education faculty intend to adopt. Information is included on the types and levels of change in a teacher education program that could be attempted as plans are laid for expanding the international aspects of the program, the kinds of learning objectives that should be set, the kinds of instructional methods and materials that can be used, and incorporating the lessons and units that result from the workshop into professional education programs.
