Learning ‘about practice’ whilst ‘in practice’ - a student teacher globalized immersion in Vanuatu
For student teachers to appreciate and gain international understanding about culture and education, they need opportunities to become immersed in communities within globalized contexts. Having the experience to plan, teach and reflect on practice whilst in practice provides student teachers with stronger understandings of the connectedness of curriculum and pedagogy. Therefore, it is recommended that global immersions such as the Vanuatu experience reported upon in this paper, are encouraged and regarded as important for universities and school communities in the development of future teachers for the 21st Century.
