Abstract

Julie and her husband have a dream of moving from Australia to a country in South-East Asia, a dream fuelled both by a love of the culture of that region and by a genuine desire to make a difference in the lives of at least some people who are less fortunate than themselves. Julie enrols in a teacher education programme in Australia, with a view to gaining a teaching position somewhere in South-East Asia. In this four-year programme, she learns about pedagogy and curriculum; she takes content courses in her subject areas; she explores learning theories, classroom management skills, assessment principles and professional development strategies. She completes 100 days of professional experience placements in Australian schools. She meets all the requirements of teacher registration. But is she ready to do the job that she really wants to do? Is she prepared to teach in a classroom in South-East Asia?
