International collaboration in teaching and research - Monash University Australia and Luleå University of Technology Sweden
2003 (English)Conference paper, Presentation (Refereed)
In this paper a collaboration program between universities from opposite sides of the world is described. This program came about after a meeting of academics from Luleå University of Technology in Sweden and Monash University in Australia at an international education conference just like this one. Then from a simple start involving academic staff visits to learn about each other’s engineering courses, research programs and facilities, a collaboration has developed which now involves research and teaching in many diverse fields of study, not just engineering. The collaboration includes inter-university research programs, regular research and teaching staff exchanges, undergraduate and post graduate student exchange programs and some novel features such as the conducting of under graduate lectures via the internet, live and simultaneously to student audiences in Sweden and Australia. The paper describes the how the collaboration came about, what is involved in the collaboration, the use of the internet for conducting inter-continental classes and the technology used to do this, the benefits of the collaboration program to the universities involved and the future hopes for the collaboration.
