Leading international teaching experiences: Teacher educators and intercultural competencies?

Research output: Book chapter/Published conference paperChapter in textbook/reference bookpeer-review

Abstract

There is increasing critical interrogation as to quality practice in the field of intercultural competences (IC) in teacher education. This is related to the research evidence on the positive relationship between teacher education, teachers’ professional competences and students’ learning (Hattie, 2003). Teachers’ professional competences effect school and curriculum development and their own professional development (Pyhältö, Pietarinen, & Soini, 2012). Teacher educators are one of the key factors in enabling future teachers’ professional competences to engage with the diversity of their teaching career.
