The effectiveness of global education organizations such as the International Association of Universities and the Association of Commonwealth Universities is evaluated in this study. Exploring the changing issues and various initiatives of academia in a global context, these essays address collaborative course development, research sharing, and the effects of various regional networks. The potential for international academic institutions and smaller networking associations in teaching, research, and service provides the impetus to strengthen these and other cross-national collaborations.
"'The volatile international environment for higher education is causing university leaders all over the world to seek the counsel of their peers, through networks and associations of all kinds. Some of these groupings work and some fail. David Teather's absorbing survey provides necessary guidance to those who know that they should get involved but aren't sure how best to do it.' Professor Don Aitkin, former Vice-Chancellor, University of Canberra; 'University education is becoming a global business. Where airlines and other global businesses have gone, universities will follow. This excellent collection of essays explores the extent, operation and potential of a phenomenon - the international consortium or alliance of universities - which will help to shape the sector for years to come.' Professor Bryan Gould, Vice-Chancellor, University of Waikato"
