As human populations increase, demands on agricultural industries intensify, and pressures on environmental quality will likely exacerbate the current and emerging disease burden to varying extents around the world. The One Health Workforce Academy supports training and empowerment through both reactive and proactive means to enhance global health security. The Faculty Scholars Network on pedagogy will strive to pilot cutting edge virtual and face-to-face training formats in order to facilitate more effective responses that prevent potential pandemics. 

Faculty Scholars Network will provide intellectual guidance and disseminate best practices for competency-based One Health training modules that form the basis for the One Health Certificate credential. The founding cohort of Faculty Scholars Network in the domain of pedagogy developed the 16 One Health training modules currently being implemented in AFROHUN and SEAOHUN. Members of the Faculty Scholars Network are subject matter experts (SMEs) who have experience in defining the hierarchy of proficiencies for One Health and can work with diverse constituencies to map and prioritize gaps in current training modules in the university Networks.
