Linguistic and Cultural Adaptation of Internationally Educated Teacher Candidates
Faez, Farahnaz
Canadian Journal of Educational Administration and Policy, n100 Feb 2010
This paper reports on findings of a qualitative study that explored the experiences, needs and challenges of internationally educated teacher candidates (IETCs) in a large metropolitan university in Canada. Interviews were conducted with IETCs as well as the teacher educator working with them. Findings revealed that IETCs required additional support in developing their oral and written communication skills and cultural knowledge for teaching in Canadian classrooms. The pedagogical implications of these findings for IETCs, for teacher educators and educational institutions are discussed. (Contains 6 footnotes.)
