The Patches program : supporting the development of Malaysian pre-service teachers' academic literacy

Hepple, Erika, Mercer, K. Louise, Tangen, Donna J., & Spooner-Lane, Rebecca S. (2010) The Patches program : supporting the development of Malaysian pre-service teachers' academic literacy. [Film/Video]


The Patches program involves Malaysian pre-service teachers working closely with Australian pre-service teachers on a series of academic and intercultural communication tasks. A recurring problem for international students is the challenge to develop social relationships with Australian students. Similarly, it is often difficult for Australian students to step outside their accustomed social worlds to establish relationships with international students. The Patches Program supported rich cross-cultural social and academic exchanges among the students facilitating the development of students' academic literacy skills, their knowledge of self and knowledge of learning, and their skills in cross-cultural communication.

Impact and interest:
