This document consists of two sections:
1. A statement of the value of international education. This statement was based on the final report for Stage 1 of The Value of International Education project, completed in 2012 and on further research in the literature about international education. The statement is organised around three themes:
- what international education is;
- the value of international education for schooling; and
- needs for undertaking international education.
2. Vignettes prepared by five schools each focusing on a different aspect of international education:
- Glenunga International High School - Changes in teaching approach and practice due to having international students in the classroom.
- Norwood Morialta High School - Exploring the changes in international students’ use of languages (English and their native language) during their time in Australia.
- Henley High School - The shift in the student population from largely mono-cultural to multi-cultural.
- Linden Park Primary School - Learning experiences from the student perspective, reactions of local and international students.
- Adelaide High School - A Principal’s perspective on leading a school with a strong international student cohort.
