ABSTRACT

Due to the influence of the Corona Virus (COVID-19) that has hit the whole world, new attempts at using various kinds of video media have been implemented. By reflecting the current situation, the purpose of this study is to explore the feasibility of implementing online international teaching practicum. For the purpose of the study, we looked at the contents of the student-teachers’ experience in their participation in International Teaching Practicum (ITP), and based on this, we explored the feasibility of online ITP. The result of this study are as follows. Online international teaching practicum is unlikely to be realistic because it is difficult to provide ‘practical experience’ to the student-teachers in terms of strengthening their multicultural competence, positionality and attitude in the online international teaching practicum scene, and positive reflection on their ITP experience. In addition, the possibility of this becoming a reality is rather low due to the limitations on what needs to be realistic for operation. However, through a type of educational volunteering service with international organizations such as UNICEF, it has been suggested that pre-service teachers can expect to strengthen their language skills, enhance their professionality, and boost their personal growth through a new type of online international teaching practicum.
