New literacies, competencies, and practices in studying the boundaries in global training and education, are explored. While research on training has been conducted in the field of professional communication, it is needed to go further in applying our research to global training contexts. Studies have found that finds that distinctiveness does not mean that there can be no intellectual and practical exchange between the disciplines. Training also needs to fit comfortably into many of the competencies, including user-centered design, and rhetorical awareness. A research-based case study is aimed at illuminating the state of communication training in an off-shored branch of a US-based company. Others have focused on how to plan and execute cross-cultural learning experiences through virtual teams. A need for research into social media, legal issues, and virtual team environments is emphasized as they affect and are affected by global training.
