dc.description.abstractIn our globalized world, educators work and live abroad. In this qualitative study, I examined the intercultural experiences of three adult educators living and working abroad. The study was conducted with the help of three United States citizens who taught English as a foreign language in Istanbul, Turkey. Using transformative learning theory as a starting point, and phenomenological research methods to gather, analyze, and synthesize the data, I found three composite themes: motivation to live and teach abroad; identity issues and transformation; and negotiating the intercultural experience. I applied Taylor’s (1994) learning model of becoming interculturally competent to help make sense of the learning processes of the intercultural experiences of the participants involved in this study.
