Year of Publication: 

Increasingly throughout the world, the delivery of programs across borders is becoming a more common phenomenon and has begun to broaden access to internationally generated higher education. These endeavors typically involve single institutions, spin-offs, partnerships, joint venture operations, and other forms of collaboration. While the presence and use of technology for the delivery of programs has been a key factor in this growth, many instances are still based on a face-to-face mode of delivery or a combination thereof. This panel presented cases involving different institutions in the delivery of educational services in particular throughout the Americas and Europe. The impact of GATS on transnational educational services was also be explored.
