Abstract: This workshop was concerned with exploring the impact of the internationalisation of teaching and learning on the academic profession, how academic staff cope with changes in expectations of them, in the nature of their work and in the new environment of performativity in Higher Education. These and related issues were explored via a presentation of a case study of the implications of internationalisation at the University of New England (UNE) and through small group discussion and a plenary. The participants in the workshop focused on the demands and challenges posed for the academic profession of internationalisation in Australian and Canadian universities by the following factors and discussed strategies for supporting academic staff in coping with change.• The wider economic, political, entrepreneurial, and compliance driven context of HE in Australia and Canada• Academic staff conceptions of culture and cross-cultural teaching• Demands of quality assurance and accountability• Demands for supporting for learning of domestic and international students on campus and via computer based distance education• Strategies for supporting academics in coping with change
