Abstract: The benefits of international education are beyond question, but international education (IE) activities remain beyond the reach of most students. Can information and communication technologies (ICTs) expand access in a meaningful way? We report highlights of six diverse case studies of innovative Canadian adventures with online IE: how they advance internationalisation priorities, support intercultural learning, and increase access to IE. Importantly, these projects demonstrate how ICTs can move us beyond old paradigms in which developed nations send their students and their ëknowledgeí to the developing world, and instead create a new space for students and faculty to meet as equals.
