International Development - Short Courses and Open Education Resources

Organisations working in the field of international development and humanitarian assistance must continually update their skills and knowledge to help keep staff safe, agile and effective in rapidly changing operating environments. As part of the OU’s social justice mission to provide quality education for all, we have created a series of short courses, micro-credentials and Open Education Resources (OERs) to support practitioners in these sectors. Please follow the links below to explore the range of courses and OERs available.

The OU collaborates with international development organisations to co-design short courses and continuous professional development opportunities which helps them to build the skills and capabilities of their staff to help keep them safe, agile and responsive in a rapidly changing world.


Open Education Resources

Open Educational Resources (OERs) are teaching and learning materials that are freely available online for anyone to use, but are produced to the same high standards as all our courses. Follow this link to explore some OER for the international development and humanitarian sectors
