Sharing Resources: Benefits of University Partnerships to Improve Teaching, Learning and Research
Hilliard, Ann
Journal of International Education Research, v8 n1 p63-70 2012
Today, many higher educational institutions are forward thinking about promoting strategic initiatives by establishing partnerships with other universities nationally and internationally. Being financial and academically savvy, universities are reaching out to meet the demands of public interests in different types of college programs and improving management processes at the university (Kruss, 2005). When universities share their human and non-human services and resources with a partner university, these universities could create effective ways to leverage more of their resources economically. The researcher will discuss the overall benefits of university partnering with another university, partnership processes, and effective communication and goal settings as partners, effective planning, international partnership benefits, and collaboration in project research, the importance of innovation and technology and evaluation of partnership objectives. University partnerships could improve many aspects of universities including, but not limited to, academic course offerings, economic status with gained support, social cross-culture advantage, political interest and support and create an environment that improves the quality of teaching, learning and research using technology.
