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.  A key outcome was the development of a six-dimensional conceptual frameworkwhich underpins the resources produced for the project.  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. The background paper, Finding common ground: Challenges and opportunities for enhancing interaction between domestic and international students, is included in the Guide.
