Abstract

This collection, Narratives of Learning from International Professional Experience,presents a variety of perspectives and experiences of learning about teaching and learning during professional experience (or practicum), in a range of global contexts.It is timely to explore this dimension of teacher education, and the personal and professional learning gained by pre-service teachers, their university and school-based mentors and host communities, as such programs are becoming increasingly popular in many universities. International teaching practicums in one form or another have been part of teacher education courses across the world since the 1970s (Cantalini-Williams et al. 2014; Parr and Chan 2015). In recent years, as researchers and policy-makers have developed a greater appreciation for globalising trends across the world, governments have talked more about increased global integration and international mobility in higher education, if they are to educate the next generation of citizens for better understanding and working with diversity and difference.
