Finding Common Ground: enhancing interaction between domestic and international students
The Final Report presents an investigation of how peer interaction can be designed and used, within the teaching and learning environment, to engage domestic and international students.

Potential obstacles to student interaction, from both teaching and learning perspectives, are identified. A DVD, Finding Common Ground, a student flyer, and background paper are available from the project website.
This guide describes the dimensions of the Interaction for Learning Framework: planning interaction, creating environments for interaction, supporting interaction, engaging with subject knowledge, developing reflexive processes, and fostering communities of learners.
