The HORN One Health eLearning materials were made open-access in March 2019. Although the uptake and use of the online material has been fantastic over the past two years, we have decided to revamp and reinvigorate it – the narrated YouTube videos have been replaced with interactive modules that include a short quiz to test users understanding of the material – we believe users will find these much more accessible, easy to use, and much more fun!
HORN’s eLearning was produced and delivered by leading international experts and cover two Tiers: Tier 1 includes introductions to One Health essentials from different academic disciplines, and One Health case studies including perspectives on HORN countries and exemplar disease-related issues within the Horn of Africa region. Tier 2 covers generic and transferable skills, such as career and generic skills, and essential research skills.
Dr Marie McIntyre, who lead the development of the HORN curriculum, said: “This teaching aims to provide a rounded basis for international researchers to understand how to develop research using a One Health ethos. In Tier 1, we provide knowledge on what OH is and how to implement it, but also where it fits within traditional academic disciplines, and how it is of relevance to the countries in which the HORN project works. In Tier 2, we give researchers the structure and tools to start their research careers, and tools to obtain and implement research grants and maximise impacts from the outputs they create”.
