Higher Education

The directors and associates of WADEmathesonTM Higher Education (HE) have first-hand experience in international higher educational start-ups, developing strategies and providing intelligence for institutions considering exporting higher education.

 

They have worked in China, Hong Kong, Singapore, Vietnam, Malaysia, India, Thailand, Indonesia, Hungry, Canada, New Zealand, the United States, Australia and countries throughout in the South Pacific, the European Union and the Middle East. Their expertise includes quality assurance, accreditation, governance and quantitative decision-making in higher education environments.

 

To involve the entire institution in the student learning process, institutions must create dynamic environments to collect data across the entire campus to demonstrate how all parties are involved in increasing or assisting in the student learning process. However, in developing and implementing new workloads and/or complex reporting systems, innovation holds the key. Nevertheless, concerning innovation, institutions fails to take advantage of obvious solutions.

 

By adapting practices that support a dynamic assessment environment while simultaneously eliminating others, more time is devoted to student learning outcomes and academic achievement. As faculty and administration use dynamic assessment systems, the productivity of students, faculty and programs increase.

 

As institutions weight the advantages of international expansion, the strategic decision depends ultimately on appropriate and reliable data, which at times challenges even the most established institutions looking to maximize their resources to deliver new business initiatives.

 

Strategic decision-making requires expert knowledge concerning how to leverage data and resources. This entails developing capabilities through systems thinking that respond to internal and external requests about quality of the learning environment, fiscal responsibility and responsiveness of an institution's stakeholders.
