Abstract/Summary Executive summary This report discusses findings from a qualitative study of international mindedness in the Diploma Programme (DP) in six International Baccalaureate (IB) schools in Australia, China and India. The aim is to provide a resource for the IB community of empirically based concepts and practices of international mindedness that have emerged from the experiences and perspectives of students, parents and teachers in IB schools. The research focused on four main areas of inquiry: - Students', parents', and teachers' conceptualisations of international mindedness in relation to the IB DP in Australia, China and India; - The relevance of international mindedness to students' post-school trajectories; - Possible approaches to the assessment of international mindedness in IB schools; - Cross-case comparisons of international mindedness by schools and countries. As part of a multi-sited approach, 196 parents, teachers, and students were interviewed in six IB schools in Australia, China and India. Additionally, observations of classroom practices and school events offered ethnographic insights into schooling practices of international mindedness across the six sites.
