Abstract

This purpose of this phenomenological qualitative research is to examine the educational impact of a trans-global service learning project with American preservice students in Jamaica. The goals were to 1) examine the educational experiences of preservice students that participated in the trans-global service learning in Jamaica, and 2) examine the role that their participation played in their ability to teach in diverse school settings. The results from multiple data collection and analysis show that students were transformed into global teachers with new cultural lenses. Several themes emerged from the study. The findings have practical, policy, and leadership implications.
