As anyone who has travelled the dissertation road knows the process dominates
until the end of that road is reached. After the fireworks, it is time, high time, to
share the outcomes outside of a small circle of experts. This monograph is part of the catalytic goals of a study undertaken between 2006 and 2012 in Groningen at the Hanze University of Applied Sciences (HG) where I am employed. The study was originally inspired by my efforts, not always successful, to help my colleagues as their teacher of English and as academic staff developer. Initially it was meant to be an applied, practitioner research to identify needs, in preparation of a pilot project, not a scientific investigation. I wanted very much to understand why Dutch teachers, who received no extra pay or status became involved in international teaching. What motivated them, what kept them going, and most of all what did they need in terms of support in the transition and changes they were experiencing?
