Episode 16 - Jenny Howard and Charlie Ries

Jenny Howard and Charlie Ries: Transnational Education

Jenny Howard is Head of the Education Development Division in ILEAD, the Institute of Leadership and Education Advanced Development, at Xi’an Jiaotong-Liverpool University (XJTLU). She is responsible for the provision of educational and professional development for XJTLU staff and postgraduate students. Her areas of interest include universal design for learning and strategies for supporting the implementation of CLIL teaching pedagogies at the disciplinary level.

Charlie Reis is Director of the PGCert for the EDD of ILEAD, a School in Xi’an Jiaotong-Liverpool University. His role is to support staff to improve the student learning experience through all HEA/AdvanceHE related initiatives, mainly directing and delivering the PGCert as well as ensuring that it is a model of pedagogy for staff. He also contributes to the realisation of the University’s strategic objectives in terms of learning and teaching and does much work with communities of practice and peer observation. 

In this podcast we discuss the value of transnational education for students and staff. Transnational education is education delivered in a country other than the country in which the awarding institution is located and in this podcast we explore how students have engaged with this opportunity and the impact it has on the student experience. We hope this podcast regarding transnational education will support you to reflect upon how you work with and support students in your own context.
