The Impact of Pedagogical Dissonance and Associated Resilience within a Foreign Sociocultural Context of Teaching Abroad

Boyd L. Bradbury
Abstract—Through the lenses of dissonance theory, resilience theory, and educational best practices, this study provides a thematic analysis of pedagogical experiences of teacher candidates within a South African school to examine what the researcher has termed pedagogical dissonance, pedagogical resilience, sociocultural dissonance, and sociocultural resilience. A thematic analysis of teacher candidates’ journals generated evidence of resilience to overcome dissonance within five categories related to pedagogy and a foreign sociocultural setting.

Index Terms—Pedagogical dissonance, pedagogical resilience, sociocultural dissonance, sociocultural resilience, teaching abroad.
