Hong Kong Teacher Perceptions of U.S. Culture and Education: A Case Study to Prepare for a Collaboration
Chiu-Yin (Cathy) Wong, Kathryn Lubniewski
Abstract
Study abroad has become an important component of many teacher education programs. Through a qualitative case study method, this paper focuses on understanding Hong Kong teachers' perceptions about U.S. culture and education. The results will help prepare for a multicultural collaboration between U.S. teacher candidates and Hong Kong educators in a study abroad course. Data were collected through in-depth, one-on-one interviews with five Hong Kong educators. The findings reveal that the Hong Kong teachers believe that respecting individual differences, inspiring students' learning, and freedom are top priorities in the U.S. However, there are also misconceptions in a few areas. We argue the importance of understanding potential stereotypes that may impact the collaboration. This paper aims to assist U.S. teacher educators and their teacher candidates in understanding the U.S. culture and education system from the perspectives of educators from another culture.
