Transformation by Innovation in Distance Education (TIDE) aims to improve the quality of higher education in Myanmar at a critical time in the country’s development. After years of low investment in the higher education system, there is now an increasing demand for skilled graduates to meet new employment needs, particularly in relation to the environmental management of Myanmar’s natural resources to ensure sustainability over years of rapid development. TIDE brings together universities in the UK and Myanmar to improve the quality of distance learning to result in more employable graduates. The partnership will innovate and strengthen the quality of the distance education system at institutional levels and in the design and delivery of learning, focusing on environmental science disciplines and making use of the rapidly emerging ICT infrastructure.
