IHEA and OneHE to work together to support independent providers to deliver high quality teaching with affordable, on demand educator development

Independent Higher Education Australia (IHEA) and OneHE today announced a new partnership 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.

“Through this partnership with OneHE, IHEA members will have access to a global network of experts delivering practical and engaging short courses online and on demand, ensuring providers can continue to provide the highest quality teaching and learning," said IHEA CEO Simon Finn. "Our members will also 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.”

“Independent higher education providers are the highest rated Australian providers in student quality surveys for overall quality, skills development, student support and learner engagement. 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."

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 microlearning content created by OneHE is designed to complement and enhance an institution’s existing professional development opportunities.

Speaking on the new partnership, Olivia Fleming, OneHE Co-Founder and Director of Partnerships, said “We are delighted to be working with Independent Higher Education Australia 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.”

Through this partnership IHEA member institutions can join OneHE at a member-only discounted rate.
