Global Trends in Transnational Education

Betsy J. Bannier

Abstract—The realities of globalization, both positive and negative, dominate the landscape of higher education. Transnational education programs allow students to pursue higher education in other countries without physically relocating. These programs offer collaborative learning opportunities which are valuable for increasingly globalized societies, and hold great potential for developing countries. However, concerns regarding cultural compromise and quality assurance remain. This article highlights current global trends in transnational education, with a dual focus on culture and quality.

Index Terms—Transnational education, online education, distance education, globalization.
