Gillett, Ailsa M. (2016) Global connections: A case study of how and why Australian teachers connect their students with Cambodian communities. Masters by Research thesis, Queensland University of Technology.


This thesis is a case study of programs in two schools connecting Australian students with communities in Cambodia. It examines the teachers’ practices and rationales for implementing such programs through the lenses of Global Education, Intercultural Understanding and Values Education. The findings of this research demonstrate the interconnectivity of these themes, and the importance of teacher experience and readiness to develop Intercultural Understanding.
