The iTKNe project (hereafter referred to as Educationlinx.com) commenced as an initiative to facilitate enhanced interaction between domestic teacher education students and international teacher education students in Australian universities. In part this comprised a response to the Bradley Review of Higher Education (2008) which identified room for improvement in domestic students’ engagement with international knowledge and Australian higher education’s engagement with international students. Educationlinx.com was envisaged as a resource that would respond to both of these needs. This concept received the support of eight Australian universities and drew inspiration from the innovative work undertaken by Professor Michael Singh at the University of Western Sydney, where the Research Orientated School-Engaged Teacher Education program (ROSETE) was successfully demonstrating new approaches to engagement with international students in teacher education. Thus the project has provided an ITC solution to enable knowledge exchange links across universities and the world at large.
