Routledge, May 13, 2013 - Education - 296 pages

Teaching in Transnational Higher Education examines current trends and challenges that face students, teachers and institutions of higher education around the globe. This book comes at a pivotal moment where many universities are offering their courses in offshore locations. Students who could once not access an international qualification can now do so without leaving their home country.

The book clearly defines and takes an in-depth look at the various types of transnational education, including: institutions that have campuses abroad, teach specific courses abroad, and form partnerships with diverse schools to teach jointly.

Teaching in Transnational Higher Education serves as a forum for debate on such insightful topics as:

  • the modification of teaching to adapt to the needs of diverse students
  • the use of technology in the classroom
  • the view of higher education as a marketable service
  • the importance of cultural awareness and understanding in a transnational classroom
  • the complexities of assuring quality education across borders

The authors choose to highlight a broad sampling of transnational programs including those in: Zambia, China, and the United Arab Emirates among others. Interviews with students and teachers participating in these programs of study make this an enjoyable and unique portrait of higher education that is invaluable to those who teach and learn around the world.
