Summary expansion
Experiences of Second Language Teacher Education brings together the voices of teacher educators working in different national and educational settings to illuminate our understanding of the processes and contexts in which second language teachers are trained and continue developing. Based on their personal experiences in the field, the authors address the themes of change in teacher education, the influence of local context on practice, the issue of interculturality and the actual process of engaging with teachers and teacher educators. The volume features dialogues between the authors, and aims to initiate further conversations among second language teacher educators. The chapters open a window into second language teacher education which will resonate with practitioners and postgraduate students alike, as well as providing a snapshot of practice in the early 21st century
