Protocols for Quality Enhancement: Transnational Educational Delivery

To add a paper, Login.

This paper draws on recent qualitative research conducted with academics working 'onshore' in the production and management of various Australian university transnational programmes, and with academics engaged 'offshore' in the delivery of these programmes in Asia, to identify quality issues and problems and to suggest protocols and practices to assuage these concerns and enhance the quality of transnational educational curriculum and pedagogy. The focus is on 'what works' and 'what doesn't' in regard to quality control from the perspectives of those directly involved in teaching and learning in Australian transnational programmes.
