Global academic integrity network (GAIN)
The Global Academic Integrity Network is a consortium of education quality and integrity agencies worldwide joining forces to fight the rise of commercial academic cheating services targeting students. Founded by Quality and Qualifications Ireland and TEQSA, the network aims to tackle commercial cheating operations, protecting students, qualifications and the integrity of national education systems.
APEC Quality Assurance of Online Learning Project
The Department of Education and Training approached TEQSA in mid-2016 to manage a project focused on the quality assurance of online higher education for countries in the APEC region. The project deliverables include the development of a Discussion Paper and Toolkit, a workshop on the Toolkit with representatives from a range of APEC economies followed by a limited number of validations in Indonesia, Vietnam and Mexico and finalisation of the discussion paper and toolkit. This work was completed in 2017.

Toolkit to support quality assurance agencies to address academic integrity and contract cheating
The toolkit was developed to share Australia’s lessons with our colleagues in quality assurance agencies in the global fight against contract cheating and other threats to academic integrity. It applies the principles of quality assurance to creating strong frameworks that support academic integrity.
TEQSA led the development of the toolkit which was funded by a grant from the International Network for Quality Assurance Agencies in Higher Education (INQAAHE).
