International engagement

The many internationally focused activities of the Faculty of Education and Social Work will be highlighted in this section of our web pages. Hopefully, readers will be able to sense our continuing commitment to the University of Sydney’s internationalisation strategy, our welcoming of international scholars and groups (many of whom are long-term collaborators), and our efforts to ensure we showcase faculty and students’ reports of their international experiences.

Faculty members should benefit from being able to access this important information in what we might call a ‘one-stop shop’, where key data about our international work is collated.

Of course it is important to add that much of our internationally focused work is ‘embedded’ in our pedagogy, or in the case studies we offer in our units, or in the research activities we undertake.

What can be seen in these pages is purely a snapshot in time to hint at the various aspects of our international work. For many of our staff and students, simply being within our faculty is itself an ‘international experience’, indicating a real linguistic and cultural variety in much of what we do.
