Pilot Projects

Throughout the Fellowship, academics, professional staff and students worked together as co-inquirers to pilot initiatives, which they will document and share as evidence-based case studies.


Applying a Critical Participatory Action Research approach, staff-student teams engaged in an iterative process, involving five phases, adapted from Betty Leask’s IoC process model in order to develop and disseminate new global learning practices.

Thirteen pilot projects developed in four Australian universities, all involving students and staff as partners in some, or all aspects of curriculum for global learning: design, learning activities, assessment, and evaluation. Informed by Betty Leask’s (2015) broad conceptualisation of ‘curriculum’, these projects covered the formal and the co-curriculum, both at home and abroad.

Eleven of these projects were presented at the Critical Friends Café at the Students as Partners in Global Learning Symposium
