The first stage of study employed the methodology of focus groups with mathematics educators from Australia, New Zealand, Mexico and Colombia. The paper present an initial theoretical model to investigate internationalization and globalization in the field, presents the methodology employed and discusses the alternative conceptualizations exhibited by the participants, some of the reasons they identified for them and some of the problems they identified.
