TNE: Impactful Collaborations, Meaningful Student Experience and Achieving Sustainability & Equity

In collaboration with the TNE Hub and in advance of their ‘Research and Practice Symposium’, this IC Global Café will explore the different aspects of TNE collaborations in an ever changing global landscape and the impact that polarising politics and economies can have on decision making. We will discuss the impact of TNE and how equity and sustainability can be achieved. The student experience is often not considered thoroughly enough and can make the difference in the success of a TNE partnership. We will also look at what needs to be considered and how the partnership can help empower students.

Do invite your colleagues who manage or who are involved in TNE so they can benefit from knowledge sharing and networking on this important topic.
