Guidelines for International Teacher Education.
American Association of Colleges for Teacher Education, Washington, DC.
This project, developed in three phases, called for the development of guidelines that could be used in the United States to internationalize undergraduate teacher preparation curricula. Guidelines were developed, validated, and revised. They consist of seven sections in the following areas: (1) administrative leadership, a commitment to the internationalization of the campus and the curriculum; (2) curriculum development, with international education as a fundamental part of general and professional studies in a culturally diverse and independent world; (3) development of faculty whose teaching, research, travel, and service will reflect the international dimension; (4) student awareness and development of attitudes, skills, and knowledge with a global dimension; (5) provision for resources including personnel, materials, and curriculum; (6) provision of service to local school districts; and (7) the use of international and comparative research in curriculum and faculty development activities. Each guideline consists of a principle, an interpretation of its potential contribution to international education, and a series of questions. (LL)
