Opportunities across Boundaries: Lessons from a Collaboratively Delivered Cross-Institution Master's Programme
de Róiste, Mairéad; Breetzke, Gregory; Reitsma, Femke
Journal of Geography in Higher Education, v39 n3 p470-477 2015
Advances in technology have created opportunities for collaborative multi-institution programme delivery which are increasingly attractive within a constrained financial environment. This paper details the development of a cross-institution collaboratively delivered masters and postgraduate diploma programme in Geographical Information Science in New Zealand. We explore the benefits of such an approach as well as the lessons learnt from its implementation. The recommendations presented will be of interest to teaching faculty considering specialized collaborative programmes as well as more senior staff who are keen to combine institutional resources to meet new and emerging demands for skills.
