Cultural and global awareness

Dr. Ryter stopped by the Playground and discussed a research interest focusing on student teachers’ development & growth of their cultural awareness following student teaching abroad experiences. She asks: how are they bringing their overseas experiences into their classrooms for their own teaching and their students’ learning?

    Update! Dr. Ryter has been working on this idea!

    She’s in the middle of analysis on a mixed method study that looked at global awareness, awareness of one’s culture & of others’ culture, and
    application of awareness as manifested in the classroom (diversity, etc).

    She is using her study to help validate a new measure for preservice teachers, as well.

    If you’re interested in this topic, chat with Dr. Ryter or comment here and we’ll pass it along. furthermore, she’s planning on presenting her findings at ITLE’s upcoming Big 12 research conference.
