This paper provides a case study of the course Communication for Information Managers (taught in Hong Kong by the University of South Australia), which has initiated a team-teaching approach that integrates ESL, academic skills and business communication content in an offshore classroom. To evaluate the effectiveness of the new approach, both quantitative (grade comparisons) and qualitative (Student Evaluation of Teaching) analyses are used. The authors conclude that immediate results are unlikely to be able to be measured in the short-term, but further qualitative analysis is needed to assess the effectiveness of the team-teaching approach.
