Intercultural learning has many meanings in the digital age of the 21st Century. The expansion of international and global education has impacted on collaborative knowledge production between students and their academic supervisors in more sophisticated ways than ever before. Doctoral studies are conducted across national borders in real time and with real participants facilitated by virtual environments and sustained by web-based technologies. This article reports on a funded trial of using web-conferencing technologies to support collaborative research supervision. The research work, the project supervision and the collaborative pedagogy produced by the international scholarly teams are enhanced by the use of web conferencing technology. Based on an evaluation of the software, this paper offers implications for enhancing the quality of joint research supervision in international contexts through the use of new technologies.
