Summary
The project addresses Internationalisation, specifically, enhancement of learning/teaching quality in transnational higher education. Building on a successful ALTC-funded project that developed key quality principles for transnational delivery, this project is the application of these principles to practice. Australia's Transnational Quality Strategy and the university sector recognise an urgent need for principles to be set in place. Uneven quality across the sector risks student/academic investments, the reputation of Australian universities and educations position as Australia's largest service export industry. Partnering four universities, this project strategically employs a collaborative, participatory approach to enlist universities in developing effective applications. Outcomes/deliverables are: a professional development programme for academics delivering Australian university transnational education; implementation of the principles in ten Australian university transnational programmes across the range of models of delivery; a set of case studies of applications of the quality principles; and sustainable, collaborative, cross-institutional networks of onshore/offshore academics fostering and ensuring offshore programme quality.
