Transnational Teaching

Overview

Transnational teaching is defined as provision of education to overseas students. Australian universities have experienced rapid growth in transnational teaching, particularly in partnership with Asian institutions, since the early 1990s. Ensuring quality in transnational teaching has become a focus in recent years. There are strong links between transnational teaching and a push to internationalise curriculum and develop awareness of cultural competency.
