This paper will describe an innovative practice based education (PBE) model that exemplifies the benefits of cross-disciplinary collaboration and the creative use of established relationships with Universities outside of Australia. The PBE project, currently being implemented, specifically aims to further develop an existing relationship with a University in Thailand in a reciprocal manner that offers social work and human services students at JCU a significant work-integrated-learning experience through participation in international community development projects, and to have that experience academically acknowledged and rewarded. Participation in these international experiences is intended to enhance students' awareness of, and facilitate direct participation in, programs focused on human rights, social capital development and sustainability. This project demonstrates that drawing on the diverse expertise, experience and contacts of a cross-disciplinary academic team can deliver innovative, internationally based, PBE experiences for the benefit of students and their communities.
