Project Details

An Inquiry into Boundary-crossing Teacher Trainees

The project investigated the experience of trainee teachers as they crossed profession, social and education boundaries. The proposed study uses in-depth narrative interviews to explore teacher trainees’ expectations and aspirations prior to their entry to the teacher education program at the Institute. The study focuses on boundary-crossing teacher trainees (i.e. those from the Chinese Mainland) and addresses the complex issue of how they view and are viewed as English language teachers in multilingual contexts such as Hong Kong. The study aims to be the beginning of a longitudinal inquiry into teacher trainees’ professional development inside and beyond the Institute.
