In the built environment (BE) sector, the co-creation process of design demands understanding of requirements (as viewed by parties involved), mobilisation of tacit knowledge, negotiation, and complex exchange of information. The need to collaborate over distance has further exacerbated the complexity of the process, and, in itself, represents a si...

Requiring students to complete their course assignments in partnership and in collaboration with students from other institutions is not commonplace teaching pedagogy. Even less so when they transcend disciplines and international borders. This Paper presents a brief account of an ongoing collaborative effort between Ryerson University, Coventry Un...

Effective communication between parties in distributed design teams is essential for successful construction projects. However, there is little consensus and understanding on the factors influencing the distanced communication between these multidisciplinary parties. Many effective practices that are applicable to traditional collocated teams may n...

... In order to do this, a multidisciplinary aid is required during individual training to explain that the complexity of today's affairs requires, as briefly observed by Poh et al. (2014), the recognition of the strengths and weaknesses of the subject; as well as those of his companions in his professional and gregarious life. Through such instruction, it is possible to stimulate active interpersonal collaboration in the identification, analysis, and resolution of some concerns and issues; thus providing a better understanding of the situation given the varied perspectives stated. ...
... Different stakeholders hold various criteria in the collaborative design process. The disciplines for roles are challenged for communication mode (Soetanto et al., 2015). After communicating with more than two individuals, the collaborative design process is more complex than before. ...
... Chi-square tests were used to identify if there were any significant differences between categories of respondents on their perception of collaboration and preferred communication mode. The initial findings with the smaller data set were presented in Soetanto et al. (2012a;2012b). This paper presents findings of analysis from a larger data set which allows more robust conclusions to be drawn. ...
... The connotations of TNE are expanded by Francois [6] to include the provision of educational services and programmes that transcend national borders and incorporate the scholarship and policies pertinent to such provision. These various perspectives on TNE indicate that it is inherently international and involves a variety of delivery channels which include, but are not limited to, online education, branch campus teaching, the "fly-in" faculty, local delivery, double awards and mixed models [4,[7][8][9][10][11], as shown in Figure 2. Due to the variety of teaching and learning modes, TNE has rapidly expanded worldwide. According to statistics, the number of overseas students enroling in UK higher education by means of TNE significantly increased from 337,260 in the academic year 2012-2013, to 510,835 in the academic year 2020-2021 [12], with a substantial growth students enroling in UK higher education by means of TNE significantly increased from 337,260 in the academic year 2012-2013, to 510,835 in the academic year 2020-2021 [12], with a substantial growth of 51.4%. ...
