Transnationally Partnered Universities –
What Does and Does Not Work in Research & Development Partnerships
May 18, 2015 1:00 PM EDT
In this first webinar, focused on partnerships, Peter Koehn (University of Montana) and Milton Obamba (University of Central Lancashire) will share principal findings from their book The Transnationally Partnered University (Palgrave Macmillan, 2014) on what does and does not work in creating and optimizing the mutual impact of research and development partnerships. Transnational partnerships fail as often as they succeed. Drawing on reports about actual collaborations, evaluation studies, critical reviews, field research, and personal insights that are focused on Africa but have broader applications, Koehn and Obama identify strengths and weaknesses in transnational higher-education partnership design, management, capacity development, sustainability, and evaluation. The recurring theme is attention to near symmetry and equity.
This webinar should be of special interest to chief international officers, higher education administrators, faculty members and students involved in or contemplating the establishment of transnational partnerships devoted to research and development objectives.
The webinar format will include a presentation by the authors, followed by time for Q&A from the participants. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar. View webinar system requirements here.
