Failing Intercultural Education? "Thoughtfulness" in Intercultural Education for Student Teachers
Lanas, Maija
European Journal of Teacher Education, v37 n2 p171-182 2014
This paper proposes a rethinking of intercultural education in teacher education, arguing that discussion of the intercultural education of student teachers tends to have the following two gaps: "one," such discussion tends to overlook student teacher education as a context for teaching intercultural education, and "two," it tends to ignore the "self" of the teacher educator. This paper aims to address both gaps. In doing so, the first task of the paper is to analyse student teacher education critically, as a structural, ideological context for intercultural education; the second task of the paper is to rethink the pedagogical relationship between a student teacher and a teacher educator, considering the self of the teacher educator in particular. The paper concludes by suggesting "thoughtfulness" as a fruitful idea for the intercultural education of student teachers.
