Abstract

Teacher preparation institutions are increasingly looking beyond America's borders as a means of broadening our future teachers' knowledge and multicultural experiences. The idea of creating a "worldly teacher" (Germain, 2008) by universities is part of the driving force behind this increasingly popular and valuable movement. Bridgewater State University believes that the international student teaching (IST) experience fosters a more global perspective by traveling, living and participating professionally in another culture.
