International exchange in social work can mean many things and is well documented. Models of interaction range from the traditional study abroad and exchange of students for courses, to faculty-led research dialogue, to tripartite curriculum development. This chapter begins by identifying the current array of international exchanges. It then discusses the goals and expectations of professional exchange in relation to curriculum. The varying historical and cultural contexts of the development of international exchange are integrated throughout the narrative. Of a wide array of structural approaches, the chapter identifies four key models: traditional study abroad, exchange via interactive video classrooms, faculty exchange, and practice and field internship exchange. Finally, the future role of international exchange in the social work curriculum as a whole is reviewed.
