The Global Teaching Assistance Network

Kranium is a network of outstanding teachers and scholars from right across the globe. We support academic programs online and face-to-face in partnership with universities. All of our members are carefully screened and quality controlled to ensure that only the best and brightest qualify for membership.

Our Mission

The academic workplace is changing rapidly. Academic work is increasingly casualised and online. This creates both problems and opportunities for academics and the universities that employ them.

Scholars of the future are likely to work for multiple institutions at the same time, many as independent contractors. Technology is facilitating this trend, enabling scholars to provide teaching and research services to universities the world over, without ever leaving their home desk. Online delivery means that universities of the future now have a global talent pool at their disposal but it can be difficult to access it and even more difficult to manage.

How can a university supervise and ensure the quality of a workforce that rarely, if ever, sets foot on campus? Kranium Network was established to address the needs of universities and academics in the new academic environment. We offer our network members a rewarding academic career while providing universities with a professionally run workforce comprised of the best and brightest minds from around the world.

  • Undergraduate and Postgraduate Pathways and Enabling Courses
