What does it mean to be worldly? FSL student teachers’ practicum experiences in France

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

What does it mean to be a worldly person? With the impact of globalization, immigration, and the rapid advancement of new technologies, many federal initiatives in Canada are being directed at professionalizing language teachers, who in turn will contribute to producing effective human capital; that is, citizens who can contribute to Canada’s competitive advantage in the global knowledge economy. Beyond these more instrumental objectives and in light of current discourses on worldliness and intercultural education, this presentation examines the varied experiences and subjectivities of French Second Language (FSL) student teachers before, during, and after their international practicum experiences in Lyon, France. Drawing upon Butler’s notion of ‘performativity’ this presentation will demonstrate how the student teachers’ experiences trouble certain theoretical assumptions currently framing international education. The data will discuss the limits of such assumptions given the complexity of youths’ (multilingual) identity-constituting performances in global times.
