Título: Mexican Teachers of English Studying Abroad: Their Perceptions of Their Learning Contexts
Palabras clave: Language teachers

Fecha de publicación: 31-Jul-2012
Editorial: Revista electrónica de investigación educativa
Descripción: This study examines the perceptions of five English teachers, Mexicans, about their learning environments during their graduate studies in various British universities. The results indicate that the positive influences of their learning contexts were: (a) the quality of instruction, (b) the use of activities to facilitate understanding, and (c) freedom of choice of subjects and study methods. Negative influences reported concerning the learning environment: (a) lack of congruence between teaching and evaluation, (b) inconsistency in teachers' evaluation practices, (c) teachers lack of clarity regarding their expectations and feedback, and (d) type of academic support received. The results suggest that higher education on a global scale requires teachers with more experience in international education. Future research on student perceptions of learning contexts might address the sociocultural aspects of this.
