BUILDING ESP TEACHER AWARENESS THROUGH INTERCULTURAL TANDEMS –
Learning teaching for specific purposes in collaboration has become well-established in the current teacher education framework, due to a growing need to encourage international cooperation between ESP teacher trainees. The aim of the present paper is to deliver a preliminary report on the study into fostering intercultural teacher identities through computer-mediated tandem learning. To accomplish this aim, two groups of student teachers were put into tandem groups to share and comment upon teaching observations, videos and activities.
