The book examines how educators deal with working at offshore college campuses in Australia showing tensions that arose during program implementation in a home campus in Australia and an offshore campus in Asia. With colleges building branch campuses, transnational education has become a new trend, not only in Australia, but throughout the world. Focusing on the way colleges have accepted a global approach to their educational process, this book looks at Australian educational programs that try to capture a growing market in Asia. It shows the intricacies of working at an offshore campus against the backdrop of an expanding transnational education in a globalizing world.
