The primary outcome of the Going Places research project is a set of Ethical Practice Principles for Student Exchange in the Indo-Pacific.

The Ethical Practice Principles have been developed through accessing the expertise, experience and knowledge of Australian Higher Education academics and mobility staff, international academics and non-government organisation staff across the Indo-Pacific region, and Australian students with recent exchange experiences.

Data was collected over 2016-2017 via a survey of Australian Schools of Social Work and qualitative interviews with social work academic staff in Australia, host staff from Indo-Pacific institutions and students from a number of Australian universities. The research findings were tested and progressively refined through multi-disciplinary workshops which included staff from mobility, work-integrated learning, and learning and teaching functions as well as academics from diverse disciplines.
