Th e basic notional category and the leading motif of the presented study is social
experience of candidates for teachers. Th e refl ection is grounded on the social psychology
of development in the context of the reality experienced by the individual,
the meanings applied to experiences (Tyszkowa, Przetacznikowa, Brzezińska), and
in the perspective of intercultural education (Lewowicki, Nikitorowicz).
In the undertaken discussion, the author refers to the results of extensive multivariate
research conducted in 2011 – 2012 in several academic environments which
diff er in location (the centre – the borderland) and in socio-economic potential.
Th is constitutes the background against which the determinants are indicated of
preparing future teachers for work in multicultural conditions.
