OneHE and the Association of American Colleges and Universities are working together to provide scalable and sustainable training and development that reaches all faculty, not just the few.
By partnering with OneHE, we will be able to help our member institutions ensure that all their faculty have the support they need, when they need it, to be as effective as possible for their students.
Through this partnership, AAC&U member institutions are eligible to join OneHE at a significantly discounted rate. OneHE courses, resources and global community are designed to complement your existing investment in staff training and development with evidence-based approaches that can benefit all your educators.
OneHE helps educators to develop their teaching practice by providing practical and engaging microlearning on effective teaching in a safe and supportive online community. Each piece of microlearning is designed to help educators make small changes in their teaching practice that they can act on straight away and that will have an impact on student success. The online platform also provides access to a global network of experts, enabling educators to connect, collaborate, and share innovative teaching and learning practices. Available on demand, the support available through OneHE is designed to complement and enhance an institution’s existing professional development opportunities.
OneHE microlearning is practical and engaging, bitesize continuous professional development that can be completed in roughly 20 minutes or less. Each course is developed by an acknowledged expert in their field to provide educators with the essential information and guidance they need to apply a concept or practice immediately, to improve student outcomes. At least one new course is added each week to the OneHE platform. In addition to courses, we have a bank of resources – guides, activities, infographics – that complement the topics covered which are also added to each week.
Courses are structured in a consistent way to provide familiarity and reduce cognitive load. Each course answers important questions that create the environment for change and the adoption of new practice: what is this practice and how does it help students?; how are educators helped by adopting this practice?; how can the practice be applied?; what is the evidence base for this practice? Each step in a course encourages educators to reflect and share their experience of applying the lessons in their context so we learn from each other.
A list of current courses can be found here. At least one new course is added weekly so there is always something new to engage with. In addition, we provide a suite of freely available, open educational resources as part of our commitment to giving back.
Each course or resource is developed with an acknowledged expert in their field. This is then checked by our team who will connect with other experts where content requires further review. 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.
We are always delighted to hear from experts who want to share their passion and expertise with other educators. Click here to register your interest. From there, you can arrange a follow up call to discuss your idea or area of interest, after which we will assess how and when we can work with you. We have a course development roadmap to ensure we address the key strategic needs of educators across the globe. We are keen to hear your ideas on creating content to share your expertise and knowledge.
We will be adding digital badges to all courses over the next few months. Badges will signify completion of courses, with different grades of badges for educators who have provided evidence of application of the practice in their context.
OneHE is a safe and supportive online community that has many features to facilitate social learning. In addition to the learning management system that delivers courses, we have a directory of related resources, a teaching and learning glossary which explains common terms and signposts to the latest related research, a community group that keeps all members informed of developments in teaching and learning and on the platform, public and private community groups that facilitate discussion and sharing of practice, and a searchable directory of members. New features are added all the time.
OneHE was established to provide flexible, affordable faculty development at scale. Our membership fee makes all our courses and resources available to all faculty for one year at a price that all institutions can afford. Rather than rationing access to faculty development, our model is to make OneHE as widely available as possible within an institution so that all faculty benefit and to complement and enhance the targeted work of Centres of Teaching and Learning.
OneHE is available as an annual membership that provides access to all content for all your faculty. The fee is calculated on the number of faculty at your institution, with fee bands that ensure the smallest organisations can take advantage of OneHE. As a global organisation committed to equity, we offer discounts to organisations in low-and medium-income countries.
The OneHE membership fee entitles all faculty at your institution to have access to all OneHE courses, resources, and public community groups for a one-year period. Institutions can choose to have their own private community space and curated microlearning directory for an additional fee.
Once an institution has become a member of OneHE, faculty members can sign up with their institutional email address. Institutions can arrange a bespoke single sign on for an additional fee.
Yes, shortly. An individual membership is available for $12.75 USD per month or $110 USD per annum. The institutional membership fee is significantly cheaper than if faculty members were to join as individuals. The individual membership offer will open later this summer.
The Association of American Colleges and Universities (AAC&U) and OneHE have partnered to deliver sustainable faculty development available at scale. The partnership will enable AAC&U member colleges, universities, and systems to provide their educators with equitable access to professional development for enhancing teaching and learning, as well as to a global community of educators. AAC&U member organizations will receive a discount on the OneHE membership fee. Additionally, OneHE and AAC&U will seek input from members on the direction of the platform and will shortly begin developing microlearning that meets the needs and priorities of AAC&U member organizations.
AAC&U member organisations receive a 15% discount on the list price.
