Part of the Intercultural Reciprocal Learning in Chinese and Western Education book series (IRLCWE)


This chapter discusses the influence that participation in the Reciprocal Learning Program in Canada has on teachers in light of five themes emerging from the narratives: transformational pedagogical understanding, teacher-student relationships, sense of community and classroom settings, reconsidering the local situation, and opportunities for reflection. Another five themes emerging during teacher induction in China are highlighted: changes in teachers’ pedagogical practices, dissonance in pedagogy, considering reciprocal learning, acculturation and school culture, and mentorship.
