Universities UK (event) - Transnational Education: opportunities to engage, share and learn

Universities UK (event) - Transnational Education: opportunities to engage, share and learn | Organisations and the Business Environment | Scoop.it

Overview:

UCAS, Universities UK and the UK HE International Unit are offering institutions a unique opportunity to share best practice and examine ways in which shared services can help institutions achieve their Transnational Education (TNE) goals, whilst debating the future shape of UK TNE. 

TNE has grown significantly over the past few years, becoming an established part of UK institutions’ internationalisation and recruitment strategies. With around 5,000 TNE courses offered by UK institutions and an estimate that TNE will become the largest mode of international education by 2020, there has still been little debate about a shared approach to promoting UK TNE, or the development of shared services for the sector.

more information here http://www.universitiesuk.ac.uk/events/Pages/TransnationalEducation.aspx

Dr Vangelis Tsiligiris's insight:

Seems a great idea. Probably UCAS engagement implies more opportunities for all parties involved.

The Ansoff Matrix

The Ansoff Matrix | Organisations and the Business Environment | Scoop.it

Successful businesspeople spend a lot of time thinking about how they can increase profits. They’ll typically have hundreds of ideas about things they could do, including developing new products, opening up new markets and new channels, and launching new marketing campaigns.

In the same way, people within organizations often have many different ideas about how they want to progress their careers. Perhaps they want to develop new skills, move into new roles, and even work in new industries.

That’s great! But, if this describes you, which of these ideas should you choose? And why?

This is where you can use a strategic approach, such as the Ansoff Matrix, to start screening your options, so that you can narrow these down and choose the ones that best suit your situation.
