Sally E. Arnett-Hartwick, Ph.D.

The purpose of this study was to determine what experiences a pre-service family and consumer sciences (FCS) teacher should participate in to develop globalization competency before entering the teaching profession. A modified Delphi method was used with a panel of 28 FCS teacher educators from various U.S. institutions. Consensus from three rounds of response statement data using an online collection tool was that FCS pre-service teachers should participate in nine experiences to develop their global competency. The findings provide FCS teacher educators and teacher preparation professionals with program direction to integrate essential experiences that support the development of a globally competent teacher during their education program.
