A Comparative Study on Identity Construction of Pre-service Teachers in Colleges in Mainland China and Hong Kong

In the language teaching field, resonating with the sociocultural turn in the human sciences, researchers have made efforts to frame teacher education in terms of the development of teaching identity rather than the acquisition of skills and techniques. The western contexts witnessed the research shift. The social and multiple nature of teacher development demands more research in the non-western contexts. This proposed study aims to comparatively explore how pre-service student teachers to construct their teaching identities in two teacher’s colleges in Guangdong Province and Hong Kong in China, which are geographically close, while socioculturally different. Two rounds of individual interviews will be conducted. As in a narrative enquiry, the interviews will be re-constructed to present the participants’ learning story and to explore the relationship between all aspects of the person on his/her way to becoming a teacher.
