A Field of Dreams?: Overseas Student Teaching as a Catalyst towards Internationalizing Teacher Education
Mahon, Jennifer
Teacher Education Quarterly, v34 n1 p133-149 Win 2007
This article offers the opportunity to consider elements necessary to create an overseas student teaching program (OST), beginning with the research into effectiveness of such initiatives and the literature on institutional change. In the second part of the article, engaging the compatibility and commitment necessary for institutional change is considered from a critical perspective as related to the options and objections encountered in setting up an OST program. These include context, program quality and requirements, as well as supervision and evaluation. Finally, the remainder of the article briefly discusses the elements necessary to bear in mind when developing an initial OST proposal.
