Internationalising teachers and teaching

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter (peer-reviewed)


    Internationalisation could be seen as the defining feature of human society today. Modern travel, ease of communication, and economic and environmental interdependence, make it vitally important that teacher educators transform their own, and their students’, learning and teaching practices, to ensure that future generations are equipped with the knowledge and skills necessary to live and work in this internationalised, globalised world. Internationalising teachers and the education they deliver to pupils is important because, as Hytten and Bettez (2008, p.170) state: To live sustainable and healthy lives in our home countries, we need to understand the impact and consequences of our choices and actions on peoples and places beyond our local region. In other words, intending teachers need to learn and teach internationally.
