The Global Teacher Educator: A Peripatetic with Purpose
Jarchow, Elaine
Mid-Western Educational Researcher, v22 n1 p7-11 Win 2009
A peripatetic is one who journeys hither and thither. Many people can claim that title by just describing a domestic day. In the context of the Mid-Western Educational Research Association (MWERA) conference theme, the globalization of the teacher education experience, the author defines a peripatetic as one who journeys hither and thither internationally and, by adding "with purpose," she means a teacher educator whose international journeys have distinct, education related objectives. Since her first international journey 43 years ago, the author has been privileged to visit 54 countries in some capacity--as a tourist, as a consultant, as an employed permanent resident, and as a conference presenter. In this paper, the author shares some of her purposeful journeys and then offers three global paths educators might consider--for their students, for their teaching, and for themselves.
