24 May: A webinar on Transnational Education: Growth at the Expense of Quality? is hosted by University World News and partnered by DrEducation. Cross-border delivery of higher education is becoming a financial necessity for some institutions and a strategic differentiation for others. Transnational education (TNE) takes many forms ranging from joint degrees and branch campuses to recent emergence of technology-enabled learning. While TNE has provided new opportunities for global engagement and expansion for many institutions, these models often come with challenges of quality. Is growth of TNE dependent on more flexible standards of quality? Or, are we stifling innovation in TNE by putting too many barriers for experimentation? In this free 60-minute University World News webinar, a panel of global experts will debate and discuss the emerging issues on the theme of transnational education.

Individual course modules also tackle a range of other topics, including globalisation and forced migration, and negotiating strategies in humanitarian situations. The Summer School is principally designed for practitioners and policy-makers working with and for refugees and related issues, normally with several years’ work experience. Participants typically include staff of the main refugee, migration and humanitarian international organisations; staff from refugee, human rights and humanitarian NGOs, and government officials working on refugee protection and related issues. They also include academics and postgraduate and postdoctoral researchers working directly on refugee and forced migration issues; practising lawyers and advocates working in refugee and human rights law pertaining to forced migrants; journalists, commentators and activists working on refugee protection and the human rights of forced migrants. Lecturers and tutors include research staff, academics and professionals from the Refugee Studies Centre and other world-class institutions, drawn from a number of disciplines and practices including law, anthropology, politics, and international relations.
