Research output: Book chapter/Published conference paperConference paper

Abstract

During September - October of 2008 and 2009, pre-service teachers from Alaska Pacific University and Charles Sturt University in Wagga Wagga collaborated in small groups to produce USA- and Australia-ready classroom lessons and activities. Differences in expectations, timelines and numbers of participating pre-service teachers following the 2008 experience prompted an improved product and more favorable ratings in the 2009 collaboration. Lessons created by and learned from pre-service teachers in Alaska and Australia are shared along with plans for improving a prospective 2010 collaboration and its progress.
