Teacher Educator Perspectives and Practices of Intercultural Education in a Bachelor of Education Program in a South African University
Abstract: Intercultural Education is becoming increasingly necessary in teacher training contexts throughout the world, including South Africa. This narrative study explored the perspectives of teacher educators and their understanding of intercultural education and the role it played in the Bachelor of Education program in a South African university. Two female and three male teacher educators from diverse backgrounds were invited to share their perspectives of intercultural education and the role it played in the Bachelor of Education program. The study revealed that they mainly agreed that intercultural education would be beneficial, but it was not adequately covered in the curriculum.
