Summary The Global Canopy illustrates coherent approaches of integrated teaching and learning between cohorts of domestic and international students at six different, sector-representative universities in Australia. The case studies explored in these chapters firmly locate and embed peer interactions in integrated learning and teaching approaches. This monograph showcases how separate cohorts of inbound and outbound students can interrelate to improve domestic student mobility and cultural understandings. A canopy' by definition is a place of selected shelter, where growth and nurturing occurs, where healthy specimens thrive with cross-fertilisation, care and interest. It is a place where new varieties can emerge as conditions change. The monograph is organised around discipline-based teaching and learning and extends current themes in the mobility and internationalisation literature. In addition, it challenges existing knowledge around the positioning of these themes in tertiary pedagogy, particularly in disciplines with strict accreditation and employment-focussed outcomes. It is hoped that this monograph through the provision of case studies with a diverse discipline-based approach provides insights into learning and teaching interactions that will drive pedagogical change in the sector.
