University World News in partnership with DrEducation, LLC hosted a webinar on the emerging trends related to the growth and quality of transnational education.
Cross-border delivery of higher education is becoming a financial necessity for some institutions and a strategic differentiation for others. Transnational education (TNE) takes many forms ranging from joint-degrees and branch campuses to recent emergence of technology-enabled learning. While TNE has provided new opportunities for global engagement and expansion for many institutions, these models often come with challenges of quality. Is growth of TNE dependent on more flexible standards of quality? Or, are we stifling innovation in TNE by putting too many barriers for experimentation?
In this webinar, a panel of global experts debated and discussed the emerging issues on the theme of transnational education.
