Perceptions of Student Teaching Abroad: Upon Return and Two Years After
Doppen, Frans H.; Diki, Kristin
Journal of International Social Studies, v7 n2 p78-97 2017
This study sought to identify preservice teachers' perceptions of their student teaching abroad experience and its effectiveness in preparing them to be globally competent educators upon completion of their student teaching as well as two years after. Findings indicate that they perceive their experience to have been both advantageous and effective and that it enhanced their global-mindedness. More than two years after student teaching abroad the experience continues to have a personal and professional impact as they find themselves to be more global-minded and seeking opportunities to share their abroad experience.
