International Field Experience--What Do Student Teachers Learn?
Lee, Jackie Fung King
Australian Journal of Teacher Education, v36 n10 p1-22 Oct 2011
This inquiry aimed to examine the benefits of having international field experience for a group of Hong Kong postgraduate student teachers who joined a six-week immersion programme in New Zealand. Through participants' reflections, interviews and programme evaluations, the present investigation found that the overseas field experience not only enriched their cultural understanding, pedagogical knowledge and skills, but also enhanced their language awareness, classroom language and recognition of different English varieties.
