This paper outlines the use of WebCT in a collaborative assessment project between an Australian and two US universities. Informed by global trends, criminal justice practitioners increasingly move through different jurisdictions and cultural contexts. We wanted to work with students and have students work with each other in ways that prepared them to operate in international surroundings in relation to international law and the transnationalisation of criminal justice agencies. The Global Project required students to engage in a series of online activities with the aim of fostering online and international co -operation between students. Moreover, as students were studying globalisation and criminal justice, it was designed to engage students in the processes and experiences of globalisation. The use of online learning technologies in fostering the internationalisation of curriculum and developing alternative group learning strategies has offered a series of challenges which require critical reflection on the ways we globalise learning.
