Dr David Grey

Defining Personal Tutoring – An Analytic Inductive Study

Commenting, Dr Nikki Spalding, the OneHE Community Manager said:

“OneHE is committed to supporting innovation, being member-led and has an underlying principle of giving back. The response to our first funding round from the Foundation, the participation of the community in the refinement of applications and the member voting demonstrates that the OneHE community shares this commitment. The four winners were chosen solely by the community and will now work with it to realise their proposals and feedback learning for the benefit of all our members.”

Dr Julie Hulme said, “The funding and the network provided by OneHE will enable the research to capture diverse views, and to inform evidence-based recommendations for the higher education sector around the world.”

Dr Jessica Guth commented “I am really excited to have been awarded a grant from the OneHE Foundation to carry out a project on law students’ writing skills.”

Andrew Walsh said “I’m really happy to receive the foundation grant, it will allow me to share the power of playful learning with others in the OneHE community in a suitably playful way.”

And Dr David Grey added “We’ve found the OneHE network to be a really useful way to reach out to, connect with, and learn from the experiences of colleagues across the sector. We will be reaching out to the OneHE community to participate in this study and we’ll be sharing the results back to the OneHE network and beyond.”

The OneHE Foundation was launched to fund innovation in teaching and learning by providing small grants to member projects voted on by the OneHE community. Funding rounds are held every four months. The value of the funds awarded will grow as the community grows in size. OneHE is committed to the concept of social good and its impact and applies this ethos to all aspects of how it works with its communities.
