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, OneHE has a growing bank of resources – guides, activities, infographics – that complement the topics covered.
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 you to reflect and share your experience of applying the lessons in your context encouraging peer learning.
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 with reference to the research literature. 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.
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 diverse needs of educators across the globe. We are keen to work with you to create content that shares your knowledge and profiles your work.
Digital badges are awarded for completing courses, and for making contributions to the community.
As members, educators earn a digital badge for each course completion, with the credential appearing in their profile. For members with a US Badgr account, credentials can be synced to their backpack and shared publicly.
New badges for learning paths (linked groups of courses) and community contributions (posts, comments, suggestions) are being added all the time.
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 is developing an app and plans to launch it in early 2022.
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. An individual membership is available for $14.99 USD per month. The institutional membership fee is significantly cheaper than if faculty members join as individuals.
