A consortium of internationally based university researchers began a year-long journey in a culturally diverse and technology-connected context to deliver this research, securing a grant to investigate language learning in elementary children in schools in five continents.

The paper will increase awareness and strategic steps in forming and organizing effective international research teams to study K-12 education. The objective is to share opportunities and barriers experienced by researchers from five continents who participated in a year-long case study that collected qualitative interview data from K-5 teachers in Australia, Hong Kong, Spain, Germany, Uruguay, and the United States.

The implementation of proven organizational strategies, building trust through meaningful relationships, and recognizing and building on each member’s strengths supported the successful outcome of a published paper. Lessons to be learned from the experience include organizational strategies, examples, and a model for future researchers to implement successful global research.
