Reskilled and "Running Ahead": Teachers in an International School Talk about Their Work
Bailey, Lucy
Journal of Research in International Education, v14 n1 p3-15 Apr 2015
This article reports on a study of the professional identity of expatriate teachers working in an international school in Malaysia. It examines the practical, cultural and professional challenges they experienced as they transitioned to an international school setting. Their experiences of curricular, organisational and cultural change are explored, and the impact of these on their professional identity is analysed. Also explored is the importance of a professional community with shared norms to maintaining a continued identity in the face of change.
