uImagine was the host for a think tank exploring Partnerships and the Business of Distance Education held on the Wagga Wagga Campus.
Scope & Overview
The growth of university partnerships, particularly public- private partnerships (PPPs) has created new opportunities for institutions to leverage increased capacity, minimise financial and reputational risks and increase their competitive advantage in a rapidly increasing marketplace. Moreover, institutions with quality online and distance learning capacity are leveraging new options for building innovative new approaches to strategic alliances and collaborations.
This Think Tank will explored existing CSU partnership models through an open dialogue of the strengths and limitations of current partnerships. The focus of this Think Tank was on Open and Distance Learning (ODL) partnerships given CSU’s increasing (66%+ students) growth and positioning in the online market. Two global experts also shared their unique experiences for building sustainable partnerships that result in value-added benefits for the institution and its partners. Discussions took place around the key questions related to CSU’s partnership strategy in the online and distance learning market including:
- What are the parameters for CSU engagement in external public and private ODL partnerships? What type of organisations does CSU want to partner? Why?
- What criteria will be used to assess the viability of potential ODL partnerships?
- What are the priority KPIs that CSU will target to assess and measure partnership effectiveness?
- What are the key risk-reward scenarios driving CSU partnerships?
- What are the value propositions for CSU and for potential partners for various partnership scenarios in ODL?
