dc.description.abstractThis chapter explores the practicum experience of international students undertaking education programmes at three different universities in Australia. International students were interviewed about their practicum experiences with a particular focus on what worked well and what needed improvement. Through a thematic analysis, as well as identifying aspects of the interview data related to multisocialisation, interculturalisation and reflection models, the authors share findings; even though international students may experience difficulties during their practicum, they also note that these experiences allow them to learn. When mentor teachers were able to recognise the international students’ strengths, then placements were successful. Further, unpacking areas that need improvement through a supportive manner enabled students to learn and reconstruct their practice. The rich and informative data on the challenges and successful approaches across the three sites in this study add to the body of literature regarding effective ways to improve work placements for international students.
