Vatalaro, Angela; Szente, Judit; Levin, Judith
Journal of the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning, v15 n2 p42-55 Apr 2015
The present paper explores the transformative learning of five pre-service teachers participating in a two-week study abroad program to Reggio Emilia, Italy. The study was conducted in order to understand how a study abroad program could contribute to pre-service teachers' content knowledge, teaching practices, and global competence. Through a phenomenological research design, participants' lived experiences and the meanings they made of those experiences during study abroad were collected, analyzed, and coded. Conclusions, discussions, and recommendations for further research are also included.
