This thesis explores the perspectives of Australian and overseas academics on their involvement in the delivery of the programs of an Australian university, utilising constructivist qualitative research methods. Three major interrelated themes emerged in the study: ‘interpersonal relations between staff’, ‘curriculum’ and ‘industrial relations’. Within these themes commonalities and tensions between academics’ perspectives at the university’s home and offshore campuses are investigated together with issues that are pertinent to only one campus. A number of implications for further theory development and research are made and several recommendations regarding policy and practice are drawn from the theory generated.
