Transnational Learning Experiences and Teacher Transcultural Capacity: The Impact on Professional Practice--A Comparative Study of Three Australian Schools
Casinader, Niranjan
Intercultural Education, v29 n2 p258-280 2018
In school education, one of the few visible responses to increasing globalisation of educational practice has been the implementation of short-term experiential overseas student learning programmes. This paper analyses the results of a comparative research project on three Australian schools that offer such learning experiences. It argues that teachers who possess or who are capable of developing a transcultural--as opposed to an intercultural--capacity are more likely to be effective educators on these special programmes, as well as being more receptive to the personal and professional development that derives from participation in them.
