American Higher Education Alliance Announces Free Membership for 12 Months
Boca Raton, FL. June 1, 2021
American Higher Education Alliance (AHEA), a nonprofit organization focused on promoting internationalization and equity in higher education, announced today that it is offering a year-long free membership to individual faculty and administrators who apply between June 1 and September 1, 2021. In addition to networking, professional development and academic resources anchored in the Alliance’s Quality Assurance Measures, a key member benefit is the inclusion of the InspirED™ platform by Tower Education Technologies.
InspirED contains the CollaboratED™ solution, the world’s first professional development and engagement solution designed for faculty and academic administrators. The cloud-based software overcomes campus technology barriers and collaborator differences of time zones and languages, and makes it easy for faculty to identify professional interests, search and find matches for project partners, and create courses, curriculum, certificate programs, and more.
“These last 15 months have shown how amazing faculty are at adapting to challenging circumstances,” said Karli Grant, President of AHEA. “At a time when institutions are struggling budget-wise, we want to recognize the continued contributions faculty make to their academic fields and reward them with a free membership and access to technology and valuable services that make it easier for them to collaborate on a global level.”
“At the same time, we want to acknowledge our EdTech development partner, Tower Education Technologies,” continued Grant. “Tower understood our mission and vision and created a platform that is literally the first of its kind in the world, and this is going to be an incredible asset to our membership.”
“We are proud to be launching the InspirED platform, and grateful for the insight and feedback garnered through our partnership with AHEA,” stated Benjamin Shank, CEO of Tower. “We understand the challenges that educators and institutions face, and providing cutting-edge technology that is affordable and accessible is part of our mission to help deliver academic excellence to students.”
