International Partnerships: broadening the experiences for pre-service teachers
Partnerships between community organizations, schools and universities are becoming more widespread as education faculties seek to broaden the experiences of their pre-service teachers (Kruger, Davies, Eckersley, Newell & Cherednichenko, 2009). The following presentation reports on one such endeavour where a small group of six student teachers, drawn from pre-service teacher education programs that included secondary, primary and primary/early childhood, were immersed in a primary/secondary rural school on the remote island of Sola, located in the Northern Province of Vanuatu.
