WOW! … Itʼs my first glimpse of the platform, courses, and infographics…Really exemplary. Well done!

Share and shape practice globally

I am so excited about this platform. I cannot tell you enough how great these classes and activities are.
I’ve always thought I treated each student as an individual when we have person-to-person interactions, but the equality vs. equity dichotomy mentioned in another course is something I’ll consider more carefully.
I love all of these ideas! I’m really looking forward to implementing some of these this Fall.
This course has reaffirmed for me the importance of taking time to build community in our classes.

This is then reviewed by internal and independent external experts to ensure that the content is practical in its application. Increasingly, we are finding that experts like to work together, to inform each other’s microlearning and to create connections between practices that enrich the experience for educators. OneHE is constantly informing the evidence base to shape the development of its courses.
