Track D: Teaching transnationally - The challenges and opportunities of flying faculty visits overseas

Link to abstract
Presenter: Dr Karen Smith, University of Greenwich
Karen presented a talk on Trans National Education (TNE), the challenges facing “Flying Faculty” – the process of teaching and supporting staff from the home institution by flying out to the remote campus for short, high intensity bursts of teaching.  Karen described her experience of being thrown in at the deep end as a member of a flying faculty at her University, and her research on Disorientating Dilemmas.

Karen’s description of flying faculty is very similar to Middlesex’s experience of teaching overseas before it established its permanent overseas campuses, such as those in Dubai, Mauritius, and Hong Kong.
