Research output: A Conference proceeding or a Chapter in BookChapterpeer-review


The chapter addresses the need for globalisation in education in the 21st century and the cultural exposure that student teachers are required to obtain by introducing a collaborative approach for internship between two Australian universities (RMIT and La Trobe) and a university (Christ) in Bangalore, India.

It is a global teaching practicum model titled ‘Peer Alliance for Productive Professional Experience in Teaching’ (PAPPET). Preservice students from the respective Australian university get teaching experience at any three respective schools associated with Christ University, Bangalore. The pairing of preservice students is done months prior to the start of the internship programme, creating a better understanding of the curriculum framework in both countries before the Australian preservice students visit. The PAPPET project includes six major aspects: collaboration, planning, peer alliance, preparations, product, and reflective evaluations. The model for the PAPPET project and the limitations offered can be used to create better collaborative projects for international teaching internships.
