ABSTRACT

Using the narrative inquiry method, this study explored the experiences of tourism student teachers in Korea. Data were collected from the student teaching practise journals of 11 tourism students teachers at 3 universities during the spring semester of 2009. Results showed that the student teachers had some difficulties in adapting themselves to a new environment such as the strict disciplinary procedures imposed upon them. Results also indicated that the student teachers seemed to make a lot effort to make a relationship with their guidance teachers. Furthermore, although they did experience the difficulties of teaching students for the first time, they developed confidence in teaching students as time went by. The study suggested that narrative inquiry was a useful method for understanding the experiences of tourism students teacher. Based on the findings of this study, several practical implication were also discussed.
