This study explores the impact of an international school-based experience on the professional beliefs and practices of TEFL trainees. Through their experiences in an Australian primary classroom, 17 Hong Kong TEFL trainees found their professional beliefs challenged in unexpected ways. A combination of stimulated recall and guided reflection encouraged participants to develop new understandings from these intercultural encounters.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
