This event took place on 17 June at 2pm, UK time.
As demand for higher education outstrips supply globally, will the current situation accelerate the growth of transnational education? The fast transformation of delivery models means that higher education could be delivered through a wide variety of programmes and platforms, including distance learning programmes, teaching partnerships, off-shore campuses and, increasingly, MOOCs.
What will be the new geographical spread of TNE and its impact? How will the current crisis influence the demand for distance learning? Join us in this session to discover changes in distance learning education policies, accreditation and recognition of online university programmes/degrees, and the future of TNE.
This webinar was delivered by the British Council's Wider Europe team as part of their higher education dialgoue series.
