Present and Future Teachers of the World's Children: How Internationally-Minded Are They?
Duckworth, Rebecca L.; Levy, Lynn Walker; Levy, Jack
Journal of Research in International Education, v4 n3 p279-311 2005
The purpose of the study was to investigate the "international mindedness" (IM) of a group of pre- and in-service international school teachers. This included an analysis of their beliefs about teaching and learning successfully in international settings. Ninety respondents completed a 55-item survey, eight of whom then participated in eight-item interviews. Results were multifold; most notably demographics of this group tended to vary while teaching beliefs and international mindedness remained relatively similar. This may suggest that many present and future international educators, while somewhat diverse, share many values and beliefs. (Contains 2 tables.)
