OneHE and IHEA have announced a new partnership today to make on demand professional development accessible to IHEA members. The partnership will enable IHEA members to complement existing staff development activities with access to professional development for enhancing teaching and learning and a global community of experts and educators.
Speaking on the new partnership, Olivia Fleming, OneHE Co-Founder and Director of Partnerships, said “We are delighted to be working with IHEA and to have the opportunity to work with its members in the years to come. We believe that all educators should have access to professional development, and we will partner with IHEA and their members to support their educators to apply evidence-based approaches from our experts in their everyday practice for their benefit of their students.
This partnership, together with our collaborative partnership with the Association of American Colleges and Universities across North America, provides clear evidence of the global need to provide affordable professional development at scale to support educators and institutions to maximise their students’ outcomes.”
OneHE provides on demand access to resources and courses on evidence-based approaches that educators can put into practice immediately to improve student learning outcomes. 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 help those that have little or no support with teaching and learning practice and to complement and enhance an institution’s existing professional development opportunities. Through this partnership IHEA member institutions can join OneHE at a member-only discounted rate.
Announcing the partnership In Australia, IHEA CEO Simon Finn said “Our members will be excited by the opportunity for their academics and educators to connect and collaborate with peers globally, developing shared understanding about how to achieve the best outcomes for students. This partnership with OneHE will continue to grow IHEA members reputation for excellence through ongoing professional development and active engagement with best practice pedagogy from around the world. The partnership commences at a critical time as we look towards a post-covid higher education environment. Connection across educational jurisdictions and exchange of best practice will be essential to ensuring the sector continues to thrive.”
