International Pre-Service Teachers' Perceptions of Experienced Teachers' Intercultural (In)Competence in Finland
Dervin, Fred
Educational Practice and Theory, v36 n2 p5-25 2014
In this article I examine international pre-service teachers' perceptions of experienced teachers' intercultural (in)competence during their practicum in Finland. The article problematizes intercultural preparation and suggests a perspective based on the idea of 'amateur interculturalists'. The analysis shows that the pre-service teachers are able to identify and question experienced teachers' disturbing discourses, attitudes and behaviours towards the 'intercultural'.
