Intrinsic Factors Affecting Overseas Student Teaching
We conducted a qualitative research study involving 13 undergraduate students who completed their student-teaching in overseas contexts. Participants completed two waves of interviews immediately after returning to campus from their multicultural experiences. Three intrinsic factors were found to have the greatest impact on students' overseas internship: cultural differences, fitting in, and social support.
