This book offers a clear and concise introduction to transnational higher education. Drawing on research, current sector guidance and policy, it asks critical questions about the role and nature of transnational education, motivations for engaging in transnational education, how transnational education is quality assured, and how it might develop in the future. It unpacks some of the differences in practice, and their inherent complexities, in an accessible way, encouraging the reader to consider their own role and context.
Critical Practice in Higher Education is a series which provides a scholarly and practical entry point for academics into key areas of higher education practice. Each book in the series explores an individual topic in depth, providing an overview in relation to current thinking and practice, informed by recent research. The series will be of interest to those engaged in the study of higher education, those involved in leading learning and teaching or working in academic development, and individuals seeking to explore particular topics of professional interest. Through critical engagement, this series aims to promote an expanded notion of being an academic - connecting research, teaching, scholarship, community engagement and leadership - while developing confidence and authority.
Having spent my time researching practitioner (both host and overseas) interactions in TNE, I passionately believe that practitioner engagement and participation is fundamental to the successful delivery of any TNE initiative. I am therefore delighted to endorse this book and recommend it to any practitioner who wishes to understand the phenomenon of TNE in greater detail to improve their knowledge and practice.
