Conversations in a Pub: Positioning the Critical Friend as "Peer Relief" in the Supervision of a Teacher Educator Study Abroad Experience
Schneider, Jenifer; Parker, Audra
Qualitative Report, v18 Article 32 2013
In this paper, we share the results of a self-study of our experience as university supervisors in a study abroad program for U.S. pre-service teachers. We share the shifts in our thinking that occurred as a result of our daily conversations about our work as teacher educators. Our reflections led us to new understandings of the nuances of field experiences, our constructions of pre-service teachers in the field, and the necessity of personal and professional renewal for faculty, not only as critical friends, but as peer relief.
