Effects of International Student Exchange on Pre-Service Teachers: A Quasi-Experimental Study
Leutwyler, Bruno; Meierhans, Claudia
Intercultural Education, v27 n2 p117-136 2016
This contribution provides empirical answers to the question of how teaching-specific competencies develop during participation in an international student exchange programme. The quantitative analyses of this quasi-experimental study suggest that, generally speaking, no specific developments occur during an exchange experience. These findings contradict the majority of existing literature. Possible reasons for this divergence are discussed. The interpretation of the results suggests future research should focus on the key question of pre-conditions for productive exchange experiences.
