Calling for Action within the Teaching Profession: It Is Time to Internationalize Teacher Education
Kissock, Craig; Richardson, Paula
Teaching Education, v21 n1 p89-101 Mar 2010
Teacher educators are challenged to break their "virtual wall of silence" and begin preparing educators for the globally interdependent world in which they will work and their students will live, by opening the world to students through international experience and integrating a global perspective throughout the curriculum. Through reflection on 20 years' experience arranging international student teaching placements, a comprehensive review of relevant literature and presentation of rationale and strategies for action, the authors offer teacher educators tools they need to move their teacher education programmes beyond the parochial to viability in the twenty-first century by assuring their graduates bring a global perspective to decision-making in education.
